Adapted from the Bard by Patrick Thomas McCarthy, '12th NIGHTed' catapults double sets of orphaned twins into Little Italy’s Palazzo Earnrighto, home to the widowed entrepreneur Olivia Ruttate Earnrighto and her wacky Italian family. Sexual confusion and mistaken identity run rampant as this wacky rom-com set on the 12th Night of Christmas 1967 whips its characters into a farcical frenzy.
