PRESS RELEASE: Brown Theatre Brings 1930s Romance to Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night; Or, What You Will:

Brown University Theatre is warming up the winter season with a new take on Shakespeare’s comedy, Twelfth Night; or What You Will. Set in the jazz-fueled era of the 1930s, this production will bring a sense of romantic whimsy and yearning to the costal region of Illyria. Comedic mistaken identity and subterfuge abound, as the party rages, the laughter flows, and the live jazz band plays on.
