There’s an exciting summer ahead for New Yorkers. Daniel Sullivan’s new production of Twelfth Night opens at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park on June 25 (home to the original Shakespeare in the park).
The cast is headed by a host of award winners in theatre, television and film. Oscar nominated Ann Hathaway plays Viola. Four-time Tony winner Audra McDonald takes the role of Olivia. Other Tony nominated actors are: Julie White (The Little Dog Laughed) as Maria, Raúl Esparza (Company, Speed-the-Plow) as Orsino and David Pittu (What’s That Smell?) as Feste.
The staging will feature an original score by the popular Brooklyn-based folk-rock band Hem, with vocalist Sally Ellyson, pianist Dan Messe, and guitarists Gary Maurer and Steve Curtis.
Something to look forward to stateside.
