Folger Theatre brings you Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the comic tale of two women mourning the loss of their beloved brothers. Olivia shuts herself away from the world, while Viola -- finding herself shipwrecked in a strange city -- disguises herself as a man. When the two meet, Olivia falls in love with Viola believing her to be a man, and the hilarity begins. Filled with Shakespeare's most indelible comedic characters and side-splitting situations, this comic tale of wild infatuation and mistaken identities in the strange land of Illyria is laugh-out-loud funny.

There are no decent restaurants within walking distance. We ate at a horrible Thai rest.
Don't worry about getting TOO dressed up here, it's more of a casual vibe.
Try Burrito Brothers on Pennsylvania Avenue. Cheap eats, but tasty.

Great performances all around. Great cast, great show. Love this theater. Every seat in the house is a good seat imo. The size of the theater itself is perfect for an intimate feel that isn't too intimate. Love the old school wooden style too. I recommend seeing this show if you get the chance to.

I always love the Folger, and Taming of the Shrew is a favorite. I loved the western interpretation and the music was fabulous. What a neat way to tie the two together! It was so well acted and every seat in the theatre is a great one.

This show's run is over now but it was a blast -- very funny and fun, which I believe was Shakespeare's intent. I for one will not pay attention to the Washington Post reviews ever again.
