Awww… I’m missing this!

Shakespeare in the Park: Twelfth Night

If I was still in NYC, I’d stand in line to get free tix to see this play (going on until July 12th).  Twelfth Night is of my faves by the Bard, and has gotten GREAT reviews!  Since I’m living MANY hrs from Central Park these days, I’ll have to settle for reviews and pics.  Oh well, there’s always NEXT summer…

 

 

A comedy love triangle: Audra McDonald (Olivia), Anne Hathaway (Cesario/Viola), & Raul Esparza (Orsino)

Though pining for Olivia, Orsino is curiously drawn to his new servant Cesario (actually Viola in drag)!

Cesario tries to convince Olivia that they are ALL wrong for each other.
This production is set in the Regency Era (Jane Austen’s time).

Cesario/Viola falls quickly in love the melancholy boss

Olivia won't take "no" for an answer!

When it's revealed his loyal/loving servant is a girl, Orsino is overjoyed!  LOL!
When it’s revealed his loyal/loving manservant is a TRULY a gentlewoman, Orsino is overjoyed! LOL!

Time to take their bows
