Twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a shipwreck, find themselves washed ashore in a beautiful but mysterious land in this "giddy, irresistible revival" that "preserves the humor-and the heart-of the original at every turn." (Baltimore Sun). Revelry, disguises, swashbuckling, and pining lovers abound as our cast of characters are caught in a maze of mistaken identity, intrigue, and mismatched ardor. Center Stage Associate Artistic Director Gavin Witt takes audiences on a journey into the exotic and glamorous world of Illyria with Twelfth Night, now through April 13.
Twelfth Night runs through April 13. Tickets start at $19 and can be purchased by calling 410.332.0033, or visiting www.centerstage.org. Full information on the season can be found at www.centerstage.org/2013-14season.
