Writing at the height of his powers, Shakespeare gives us a feast of language and songs – and a stage full of memorable characters – from the lovesick Olivia to the alesick Sir Toby Belch, from the acquiescent Sir Andrew Aguecheek to the pompous Malvolio. Sublime and subversive, Twelfth Night breaks rules and bends gender to show love in all its guises and disguises. At the beginning of the season, actors started rehearsals on Tuesday, did a dress rehearsal that Thursday, and performed for a paying audience starting that Friday. Don’t miss the thrill of the Ren Season!
Benjamin Curns "shines brightly" as Sir Toby Belch. "Hearing this masterful actor deliver Shakespeare's words like an Elizabethan Foster Brooks is a rare treat...John Harrell brings down the house a number of times...and Gregory Jon Phelps...delivers spot-on comic timing...the hands-down show stealer is Daniel Kennedy as Malvolio... an absolute stitch as Olivia's stuffy steward." -- Staunton News Leader.
