If music be the food of love, play on
Mischief abounds in Shakespeare's beloved romantic comedy set on the shores of distant Illyria. Desperate to find her twin brother Sebastian after a shipwreck separates them, canny Viola disguises herself as man and joins the service of the handsome Duke Orsino. When bidden to help Orsino shake off the admirations of the tenacious Lady Olivia, she finds herself at the center of a love triangle of unexpected proportions. Love, laughter and delight shine on all corners of the Bard's mad-cap masterpiece.
Directed by Ethan McSweeny, this new production for the Shakespeare Theatre Company promises to be imbued with his signature talent for capturing the magic, music and joy of Shakespeare's world.
