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.
Featuring an original jazz-funk score by rising Broadway star, Shaina Taub.
"A musical take on the Bard offers the spirit of community, a lesson in gender identity and an infectious good time." – Variety
"This is a place where people of all ages, races and genders live in harmony, with just enough gossip and misunderstandings to keep things interesting." - The New York Times
"Ms. Taub's tuneful pop-soul score is reminiscent of a big-budget Disney show" - The Wall Street Journal
"Less an interpretation of Shakespeare's comedy than a block party sprinkled with iambic pentameter." - The New Yorker
"Delights with a steady insistence and overwhelms with a tidal wave of enthusiasm. Resistance? Futile. Let it wash over you." - Entertainment Weekly
