Inspired by both titles of William Shakespeare's popular, musical comedy, Tennessee Shakespeare Company (TSC), the Mid-South's professional classical theatre, continues its seventh season of plays with a turn-of-the-century musical hall production of Twelfth Night, or What You Will.
Coming off the company's record-breaking production of Richard III over Halloween, Twelfth Night will run December 11-21 in the Dixon's Winegardner Auditorium to celebrate all the seasonal holidays during our Winter Solstice.
The production is sponsored by Pat Ernest Kelly.
Directed by TSC founder and producing artistic director Dan McCleary (Richard in Richard III), Twelfth Night features more than the usual cross-dressing, music, and songs in Shakespeare's play. The close-quartered Dixon space invites a celebratory party atmosphere reminiscent of the Moulin Rouge.
