Description

Lost lovers and their unruly servants converge and conspire in this music-filled feast of love – lost and found, mistaken and put right. Shipwrecked and separated from her brother, Viola encounters Orsino, much in love with the Lady Olivia. In Shakespeare’s romantic-comedy, mistaken identity delightfully combines with the pranks of Sir Toby and other rascals to reveal love in all of its guises.

Directed by Robert Richmond (Henry V at the Folger), the celebrated cast includes Rachel Pickup, Emily Trask, Michael Brusasco, Craig Wallace, Tonya Beckman, James Konicek, Louis Butelli, Richard Sheridan Willis, Chris Genebach, Joshua Morgan, and William Vaughan, in a romance bursting with music, dances and flights of fancy.
