twelfth-night-icon-50x50Twelfth Night: Paris, 1920. In a world turned upside down by WWI, Paris became a beacon of light, a place where those from different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes could come together and indulge in the excesses of what would come to be known as “The Crazy Years.” Still grieving from the losses of the war, France turned to American, and especially African American, culture in order to move forward. Some deeply resented this change, while many others zealously embraced it. This approach to Shakespeare’s classic comedy asks the question: How, after life-altering events, can we sort out what we are from who we used to be? This show will run in the fall of 2016.
