Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon ’em. – Malvolio, Act 2 Scene 5, Twelfth Night by Shakespere

You still have time to catch a few remaining performances of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy Twelfth Night, at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre. Fans of Shakespeare should enjoy this funny, fresh, and contemporary production of Shakespeare’s tale of twins separated in a shipwreck. Viola pretends to be a man and falls in love with a Duke, who in turn is in love with Countess Olivia, who falls in love with the man she believes Viola to be. Hilarity and heartbreak ensue. “If music be the food of love, play on,” is one famous line from the play, and since the play is still being performed since being written in the 1600s, you’re practically guaranteed to enjoy yourself. The production is recommended for ages 14 and up, and there will be the sound of a gunshot and also strobe lighting.
