Join CAS at the Laundry King at 65 Main Street, Livingston Manor, NY for a special screening of the film Twelfth Night (2015) starring Mark Rylance, featuring a talkback with programmer Bradley Diuguid.
Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, William Shakespeare's beloved comedy Twelfth Night combines the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare ever wrote.
Mounted by the Globe in England for a production that went on to storm Broadway and the Tony Awards, this all-male Original Practices production explores clothing, music, dance and settings possible in the Globe of around 1601. Mark Rylance is masterful as Olivia, earning the highest accolades of his storied career, while comedian Stephen Fry brings belly laughs as Malvolio.
