From the show:

Célébrons ce beau jour… In this “hootenanny” Twelfth Night, Director Thomas Kapusta reimagines Shakespeare’s wistful play of festivity and loss via his French-Canadian heritage, transporting the ensemble comedy to a kitchen parlor in Hardwick, Vermont.

When words fail, it’s music that lets us love in mourning, mourn while celebrating, and celebrate being in love.
