'Free-spirited, thoroughly delightful with a buoyant jazz-and-R&B-inflected score' New York Times
Shakespeare gets a shake-up as soulful melodies and R&B beats weave through this enchanting musical adaptation of Twelfth Night.
Viola and her twin brother Sebastian wash up on the shores of Illyria and when she disguises herself as a man, a joyous whirlwind of gender-bending and unrequited love begins.
This celebration of love in all its forms features an awe-inspiring community chorus from Southwark and Lambeth with music and lyrics by the critically acclaimed songwriter Shaina Taub.
Young Vic Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah and The Public Theater’s Oskar Eustis co-direct this extraordinary UK premiere.
Twelfth Night is presented by arrangement with The Musical Company, LP, 214 Sullivan Street, Ste. 4, New York, NY 10012. www.themusicalcompany.com
