Star-Studded Twelfth Night On The Way in NYC

by warren king |

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.

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.
