BRIGHTEN UP YOUR WINTER DAYS WITH THIS SUNNY COMEDY
“If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction.” The lovely Viola, shipwrecked in Havana, Cuba in the 1950s, and believing her twin brother to be dead, dresses up like a man to make her way in a new land. She becomes a messenger for Mafioso Don Orsino, who bids her plead his case of love to the alluring Olivia. Unfortunately, Olivia falls in love with the disguised Viola, while at the same time Viola falls in love with Orsino. Along the way, Viola’s lost twin emerges from the sea and we are entertained by Feste, who is something of a cross between Frank Sinatra and Ricky Ricardo. This “very midsummer madness” full of droll wit, cross-dressing, and mistaken identity will bring laughter to your midwinter days. Peek at our cast list here.
