About the Show

Eight actors. A bare stage. A violent shipwreck. A love-sick duke. Separated twins. A beautiful countess. For its debut show, Duende Productions offers a stripped-down take on Shakespeare's beloved romantic comedy.

Smartly staged, Beautifully played, Direct, Clear, Delightful

See it if you’d like to see a clear, joyous production of Shakespeare’s most psychologically complex romantic comedy.

Don't see it if you don’t want to see any more Shakespeare. Read more

Great singing, Great acting, Great staging, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if you'd like a very different production of this Shakespeare play. It has unique music, an energized cast and all white staging and costumes.

Don't see it if you cannot sit for two hours on a folding chair without an intermission or if you want your Shakespeare to be traditionally presented.

"By stripping down the show and performing it in a white box theater space with minimal scenery and costumes, the eight actors, doubling up on parts, have fun interpreting Shakespeare's luscious comedy of unrequited love and mistaken identity for each other, often bringing the viewers into the action (with mixed results). This is probably the friendliest 'Twelfth Night' I've ever seen since the musical 'Your Own Thing' in the sixties."

"The play is performed in only one act, a very long time to remain seated on relatively stiff folding chairs...The energetic cast appears to be relishing the opportunity to dive headfirst into their broadly conceived characterizations...Those decisions ensure funny will indeed happen...This version of 'Twelfth Night' seemed a bit out of balance. That is not uninteresting, just different. With more focus on the core storytelling, the creative flourishes will be even more appreciated."
