"Oh, disguise, you are the Devil's blessing.”
Featuring an original jazz-funk score by Shaina Taub, this rousing musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic romantic comedy follows twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a shipwreck. When Viola disguises herself as a boy to become Duke Orsino’s servant, she falls for Orsino, who’s fallen for Countess Olivia, who falls for Cesario, who is actually Viola. This tale of mistaken identities, viewed through a contemporary lens, celebrates true self, true love, and the spirit of community.
