Twelfth Night

  • Twelfth Night

A classic story of love and mistaken identity.

A musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Conceived by Kwame Kwei-Armah & Shaina Taub
Music and Lyrics by Shania Taub

Named one of the best theatrical productions of 2018 by Time, The Hollywood Reporter and The Washington Post, Twelfth Night is a rousing contemporary musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy about mistaken identity and self-discovery.

Twelfth Night tells the story of Viola, a young heroine who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess and falls hard for a Duke. As she navigates this strange and wonderful new land, she finds her true self and true love in the process.

Featuring an original jazz-funk score by Taub, with a flexible-sized cast and running 90-minutes long, Twelfth Night is appropriate for all audiences and groups.
