Mark Rylance, the celebrated theatrical chameleon and double Tony winner, plays both the hump-back evil king and the noble Olivia in all-male productions of "Richard III" and "Twelfth Night," in repertory at Broadway's Belasco Theatre, beginning previews Oct. 15. Since acting was considered too wicked for women in Shakespeare's day, all portrayals in these stagings from Shakespeare's recreated Globe Theatre in London will be more or less authentic.
