Stephen Fry - Stephen Fry Making Broadway Debut In Twelfth Night

British actor Stephen Fry is set to make his Broadway debut this autumn (13) when his critically-acclaimed West End production of Twelfth Night is revived in New York.

The Gosford Park star portrayed pompous Malvolio in the all-male cast of the comedy, which launched at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London before enjoying a sold-out run in the U.K. capital's theatre district last year (12).

The show will begin previews at Manhattan's Belasco Theatre in October (13) as part of a Shakespeare double bill - Tony-winning actor Mark Rylance will top the bill in another former Globe production, Richard Iii, while he will also play lovelorn Olivia in Twelfth Night.

The plays, directed by Tim Carroll, will officially open on 10 November (13).

The news will give Fry something to look forward to after stunning fans this week (begs03Jun13) by confessing to attempting suicide while working abroad last year (12).
