The Queens Players present Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, Aug 2-4, 9-12, 16-18 at 8 p.m., with a matinee on Aug 18 at 2PM at The Secret Theatre, located at 44 - 02 23rd Street, LIC, NYC.
Produced by Richard Mazda for The Queens Players, the show is directed by Alberto Bonilla with producer Jonathan Emerson, assistant director Chrissy Sheehan and co-stage managers Luke Rosenthal and Kenny Broadway. The design team features costumes by Terrell Green, photography by Peter Giglio, videography by Kenny Broadway and original music by Will Stackpole.
After critically acclaimed productions last season of The Three Sisters, Servant of Two Masters and Ibsen’s Ghosts the Queens players returns to the Secret Theatre stage in this hilarious, groundbreaking new production of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.
Director Alberto Bonilla (who brought new meaning to the word funny with his sell out production of Servant of Two Masters) calls the production “a celebration of the theatre” in which the audience themselves is one of the actors and the whole performance space is part of the stage.
Using elements of clowning, improvisation, and audience interaction allows the cast to explore this classic tale of illusions of love, mistaken identity, and the masks we all wear in joyous new ways.
In short you'll laugh, you'll cry…and then you’ll probably laugh again really…really…hard.
P.S. to kick off our season and begin our nightly celebration with a bang we will be offering a special Twelfth Night Cocktail included with the purchase of your ticket to help get the party started.
Featuring: Thom Brown III, Zack Clark, John Cormier, Nicole Davis, Jonathan Emerson, Kathryn Finch, Elizabeth Inghram, Marcin Mesa, Michael Moreno, Kaylyn Scardefield, Mark Weatherup JR.
Twelfth Night is an approved Actors Equity Showcase.
