"If music be the food of love, play on!" When her ship is wrecked, Viola washes ashore in the unfamiliar land of Illyria and embarks on a journey to find her lost brother. Brimming with music, love, and longing, William Shakespeare's enchanting play transports audiences to a world of comedic mayhem, mistaken identity, and unrequited passion, where nothing is as it seems, but anything is possible.
