The Tony nominations are out, and Twelfth Night has nabbed seven nominations, including Best Revival of a Play, Best Direction, and FOUR Best Actor nods. The production, which ran in New York from November 10 2013 to February 16 2014, was an import from the Globe Theater in London and was performed as it might have been in Shakespeare’s day, with an all male cast on a stage lit by candles.
Sigh. I wish this one had been offered in theaters a la NTLive!
Speaking of which…
