About the show

Gallery Players presents Shakespeare's beloved comedy centered around the twins Viola and Sebastian, who are separated in a shipwreck.  More…

Viola (who is disguised as Cesario) falls in love with Duke Orsino, who in turn is in love with the Countess Olivia. Upon meeting Viola, Countess Olivia falls in love with her thinking she is a man. Meanwhile, Sebastian has been rescued by Antonio, a sea captain who previously fought against Orsino, who accompanies him to Illyria despite the danger. Confusion over Sebastian’s identity (and exactly who is promised to whom) soon follows in this romantic comedy.

Delightful, Enchanting, Great writing, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you've always secretly suspected that every character in "Twelfth Night" is comical and want to see a playful cast run with that concept.

Don't see it if direct address to the audience bothers you. I don't think there was one actor who didn't acknowledge the audience repeatedly.

Entertaining, Fun, Great staging

See it if A solid version of this play. Well acted, good music. Fun use of a large stage.

Don't see it if It didn't hit all the jokes as well as it could have. And had moments of feeling a little forced. Some of the monologues felt over long
