Twelfth NightFilter Theatre & Royal Shakespeare Company

February 9 – 13, 2016  ·  Harold Prince Theatre


Two worlds collide in this explosive new take on Shakespeare’s lyrical Twelfth Night. Britain’s Filter Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company pair classical verse with a riotous gig in this radically-cut and fast-paced story of romance, satire and mistaken identity. No two shows are ever the same: decisions on the direction of the performance are made spontaneously as the narrative unfolds, and each unique show develops in a different way. "Rock-and-roll Shakespeare's a blast" (Daily Telegraph)!
