Bryant Park Shakespeare - Twelfth Night

Friday, July 27, 2018

7:00 p.m.9:00 p.m.

This event repeats every day between 7/27/2018 and 7/28/2018.

Join us on the lawn for a full production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, produced by the Drilling Company. Twins Sebastian and Viola stumble upon the flamboyant, technicolor world of Illyria, visually inspired by the surreal wonderlands of The Wizard of Oz, Yellow Submarine and the works of Doctor Seuss – an exuberant live-action cartoon.

This event is part of the Bryant Park Picnics series. Each Picnics evening is free to the public with no dress code, no tickets, and no lines. Over 200 blankets are free to borrow so audience members can spread out and relax while enjoying the performance. Beer and wine are available for purchase, along with food from Hester Street Fair on Friday evenings.
