ABOUT THE SHOW
Named one of the best theatrical productions of 2018 by Time, The Hollywood Reporter and The Washington Post, "TWELFTH NIGHT" is a rousing contemporary musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy about mistaken identity and self-discovery.
"TWELFTH NIGHT" tells the story of Viola, a young heroine who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess and falls hard for a Duke.
As she navigates this strange and wonderful new land, she finds her true self and true love in the process.
