Ambitious, Clever, Slow, Great singing, Confusing

See it if you are a Joey McIntyre fan and are not expecting a standard staging of a Shakespearean treasure

Don't see it if 2 hours and 45 minutes of the Bard is too much for you to handle

Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You like Shakespeare and don't mind some changes. Are a fan of small energetic casts and want to see Joey McIntyre in a supporting role.

Don't see it if You need Shakespeare to stay original. You're expecting a musical, there are a few songs, but very limited.

Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you love Shakespeare and appreciate fresh new ways of interpreting the work. Also see it if you are a child of the 80s/90s and love NKOTB!

Don't see it if You need your Shakespeare to be period and textbook to the original.

"The current production of 'Twelfth Night' at the Two River Theater is not only the best staging of William Shakespeare’s delightful comedy that I’ve ever seen, it’s among the best staging of any play I’ve ever seen. Definitely top 10."
