Boomerang Theatre presents their 20th Anniversary Production of Free Outdoor Shakespeare in New York's Central Park with the Bard's classic romantic comedy of mistaken identity. More…
It begins at night, with a shipwreck. All are lost, save one...a valiant woman washed ashore in a strange country. In an instant, Viola becomes the person she needs to be...in disguise. She serves the Duke, and discovers a passion in her heart as strange as the country she now inhabits. But Duke Orsino loves another. And so Viola becomes the Duke's messenger, delivering his love to Olivia. Can she do it? Should she? And what becomes of all of them when Viola sheds her disguise and reveals her true self? To settle all, Viola may have to outdrink Sir Toby and Sir Andrew, outwit Feste, and outmaneuver Malvolio if she has any hope of setting true love right!
“It isn't afraid to embrace the play's bawdiness and meta jokes about comedians, theater, and poetry, but it also doesn’t let those crowd out interpretive choices that create small character moments...There is some inventive and effective use of the outdoor space, and this barest of bare stages showcases the talent of the cast...Boomerang's ‘Twelfth Night’ offers something for everyone: slapstick, wordplay, romance, and song.” Full Review
See it if you enjoy a well-paced, cleverly staged production of a Shakespearean classic.
Don't see it if you don't have too long an attention span (two hours in the park without an intermission).
