THE AWARD-WINNING BOOMERANG THEATRE COMPANY, celebrating 20 years of producing re-imagined classics and world premieres, is pleased to present William Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT, directed by Sara Thigpen. TWELFTH NIGHT will play a limited outdoor engagement at Central Park (69th Street and Central Park West, NYC). Performances begin Saturday, June 16 and continue through Sunday, July 15.
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!
