ONE OF THE BEST MUSICALS OF 2018
 
This enchanting and soulful musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy of mistaken identity and self-discovery was named one of the best theatrical productions of 2018 by Time, The Hollywood Reporter and The Washington Post. When Viola is shipwrecked on the unfamiliar shores of Illyria, she assumes the role of her lost twin brother, setting in motion a hilariously complicated tangle of love and longing. Mischief and hijinks ensue. Love, in its many disguises, blooms in every corner. Viola discovers her true love and her true self. The non-stop musical score from critically – acclaimed musician Shaina Taub is radically inclusive – ranging from New Orleans jazz to Motown soul to Broadway show tunes to 80’s pop. “If music be the food of love, play on. Play on!”

“A joyous dazzlingly colorful musical.” – Time Out
