Twelfth Night

Online Stream

A new audio play with original music and immersive 360 sound. Taking inspiration from the immortal line "If music be the food of love play on!," Artistic Director Barbara Gaines reimagines Shakespeare's lyrical romance with all-new songs from composer Joriah Kwame. Mismatched lovers and a steward decked out in yellow stockings navigate the slippery shores of Illyria in search of their very own happy endings. Separated in a sea storm from her brother Sebastian and washed ashore, Viola adopts a male disguise and enters the service of Duke Orsino-only to find herself in the middle of a complex triangle of unrequited love.

Around The Town Chicago - Somewhat Recommended

"..."Twelfth Night, An Enhanced Audio Play" is a brand-new accomplishment by the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. If you are a Shakespeare buff or are already familiar with the tale, this show will probably work for you. There are many fine and wonderful elements that have been incorporated into this stream-on-demand production. But because it is an audio-only experience, it suffers from having too many characters and too many things going on at the same time, which makes it difficult to successfully follow the plot. It takes a lot of effort to keep everything and everybody straight while taking in the details of the story and the beautiful use of Shakespearean English."
