It’s time you experience the old ways of theater while on your New York vacation with William Shakespeare’s Richard III at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. ShowTickets.com is your source for tickets to this rousing version of the classic tale. Richard, who happens to be the Duke of Gloucester, wants to be the King of England in the worst way. How bad does he want it? He’s already killed one king and his son to get the crown, and he’s already set his sights on two gullible brothers and two nephews. This New York show brings to light exactly how far one man will go for his desires.
And that goes double for the cast headlined by Tony Award-winner Mark Rylance. This Broadway play is being performed as closely as it can to the Elizabethan Era as possible in the heart of the Big Apple. There won’t be much artificial light used during the show. Instead, you’ll see 100 strategically placed candles around the stage. Plus, the actors -- all guys, by the way -- performing in the show are getting dressed and applying makeup on stage before the play begins. It’s truly an experience that has no equal on the Great White Way.
