Sean Graney's TWELVE NIGHTS Runs Now thru 12/14 at Theaterlab
It's Christmas Break, 1988 and The Duke just wants to make the perfect mix-tape for Olivia. That'll win her heart for sure. In Twelve Nights, four actors take on thirteen roles in a freewheeling, 80s music infused adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night by the creator of These Seven Sicknesses, Sean Graney.
