Tony and Oscar Winner Mark Rylance To Return To Broadway In Farinelli and the King

Image result for farinelli and the king logoOne of this season’s most highly anticipated shows is Farinelli and the King. The show, which stars three-time Tony Award winner and 2016 Academy Award winner Mark Rylance, is set to begin previews at the Belasco Theatre on December 5, with opening night scheduled for December 17.

The show, which first opened at the Shakespeare’s Globe in 2015 prior to it’s sold out run in the West End, is written by Claire van Kampen, AKA Mrs. Mark Rylance, and directed by John Dove.

So what exactly is the show about? Well I’ll tell you. Farinelli and the King, tells the story of King Philippe V of Spain (Mark Rylance), who suffers from insomnia, leaving him bedridden. The queen, whose prior attempts at a solution have failed, discovers Farinelli, a castrato who's angelic voice mesmerizes all who come in contact with it.  However there is only one problem. Will Farinelli, the world renowned singer, give up fortune and fame to remain at the beck and call for Spain’s reigning monarch? I guess you will have to buy a ticket to find out. Tickets for the critically acclaimed new play have been selling like crazy when it was first announced back in May. Get your tickets to see Farinelli and the King on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre. Until next theatre fans.
