Sleeping Overnight To See Twelfth Night Anyone?

As if the lineups weren't going to be insane enough for Anne Hathaway in Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park New York.

Now Audra McDonald (theatre diva extraordinaire and FOUR time Tony winner, Private Practice) joins the cast?!!!

Now Raúl Esparza (the quintessential Bobby in Company, Pushing Daisies) joins the cast?!!!

Now Hamish Linklater (hilarious as Christine's brother Matthew in The New Adventures of Old Christine, Gideon's Crossing) joins the cast?!!!

Now David Pittu (so hilarious in Mark Twain's "New" play Is He Dead?) joins the cast?!!!

Crap. Now I'm REALLY going to have to lineup for this. Who's with me at 5 am to go join the lineup?

Twelfth Night starts June 10th and runs until July 12th 2009. Directed by Daniel Sullivan (Accent on Youth, Top Girls, Rabbit Hole)

There's no ticket info yet but usually they are given out free at 1pm in the park on a first-come-first-serve basis. Last year, they implemented a new online lottery system on the day of (starting at midnight I believe though not awarded until the afternoon).

I really need to stop assuming that I've read all the posts underneath the top one.
I LOVE Audra MacDonald. I'm going to do everything in my power to see this production.

Oh wow. I love Twelfth Night. I'm guessing they've got Audra McDonald as Olivia, but Raul Esparza could easily play Orsino or Malvolio with much effect.
