“Better a witty fool, than a foolish wit.”
A music hall revelry ideal for the holidays!
William Shakespeare’s charming 1601 comedy is a topsy-turvy world of cross-dressing lovers, yellow cross-garters, and crossed identities. Inspired by the final days of Christmas, the winter solstice, and the Festival of Light, TSC celebrates the joy of the season with this uproarious music hall production.
Shipwrecked on the shores of Illyria, Viola has lost her country and beloved twin brother. Disguising herself as Cesario, a page, she falls in love with Duke Orsino even as she delivers his affections to lovely Lady Olivia. Between beautiful songs, high comedy, and delicate poetry, love redeems all.
