William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night or What You Will is perhaps the greatest of his comedies. It was originally staged in the 16th century as part of a then-traditional Twelfth Night celebration. In director, J.C. Gafford's rendition, the audience members are invited guests to a Shakespearean celebration given by the Mummers, a 19th century traveling acting troupe. You, too, are invited to partake in the revelry of "Twelfth Night," a delightful comedy filled with romance, misunderstandings and cross-dressing!
