Houston Shakespeare Festival: Twelfth Night
In Illyria, music is the food of love and nobody is quite what they seem.
Houston Shakespeare Festival’s intoxicating comedy Twelfth Night ponders love lost and found. Mistaken identities and role reversals abound in one of Shakespeare’s most inventive romantic romps. A shipwreck separates the twins Viola and Sebastian, but tragedy quickly turns to comedy when they wash up in a land turned upside-down by love. Artistic Director Jack Young directs this relentless pursuit of unrequited love with gender-bending wit, drunken high-jinks, and swooning serenades.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 am-1 pm. If tickets remain at 1 pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows go on rain or shine.
