TWELFTH NIGHT: ABOUT THE PLAY
As Shakespeare's most fascinating comic heroine, Viola turns personal tragedy and loss into a life-changing experience for herself and those she comes to love. Yes, there will be a storm, twins, mistaken identities, and – above all – music, the food of love. Join us for an enchanting and poetic journey of discovery.
