Slipstream Theatre Initiative to Present Encore of All-Male TWELFTH NIGHT at Two Muses Theatre, 5/7
Slipstream Theatre Initiative is proud to announce an encore production of it's all-male Twelfth Night. The original performance was a one night only engagement presented at the Michigan Actors Studio and back by popular demand, will take to the Two Muses stage on Wednesday, May 7 at 8:00pm for one more laugh out loud showing of Shakespeare's timeless classic with some new twists.
The cast consists of ten males and explores the idea of gender identity in a world where male and female are not the only genders and identity is an elusive word. Take the Bard's fantastic tale of woman posing as man to find her long lost twin, add the comically tragic love triangle and then throw in the idea of sexual confusion and identity crisis and you've got the world we live in.
One night only and back by an overwhelming demand, Slipstream is excited to take you on this journey and introduce you to Shakespeare in a way you are not used to seeing him. The three hour play has been edited down to just about an hour and there is no shortage of fun. You are guaranteed to laugh from your gut and question what gender is in the fast paced, endlessly questionable world in which we live.
Twelfth Night is produced by Slipstream Theatre Initiative and Emilio Rodriguez, directed and costumed by Bailey Boudreau, edited by Emilio Rodriguez, and features set design and execution by Alexander H. Trice.
Tickets are $10.
