Austin Shakespeare presents Bollywood Twelfth Night
One of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, Bollywood Twelfth Night will feature dances by Prakash Mohandas and songs by Austin singer/songwriter Nagavalli.
Viola, a young woman disguised as the boy servant Cesario in the fantastical world of Illyia, falls head over heels in love with her boss, Duke Orsino. Orsino sends Viola, on his behalf, to woo Olivia, the woman he loves. Twelfth Night is also beloved for the comic subplot that revolves around the super-serious servant Malvolio who is tricked into wearing yellow stockings to also woo his boss, Olivia.
