TWELFTH NIGHT, or Sir Toby Belch's Lonely Hearts Club Cabaret is Three Day Hangover's ode to the surprising, delightful, and ridiculous ways we find to love and live with each other in the concrete wonderland that is New York City. Shakespeare's story of missed connections, frustrated love and the audacious pursuit of happiness is turned on its head with LIVE BAND KARAOKE! We'll drink. We'll sing. Maybe you'll sing, too? If music be the food of love, ROCK on!
