I've been writing this project for months and am so excited to share with you that I'm creating a musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for the Public Theater that will be performed this summer at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park as part of the Public Works initiative, directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah. Learn more about the show here!
Public Works is a major new program of the Public Theater that seeks to engage the people of New York by making them creators and not just spectators, deliberately blurring the line between professional artists and community members, creating theater that is not only for the people, but by and of the people as well. I'm humbled and elated to be involved in this extraordinary effort and I encourage you to read more about Public Works here.
Here's a shot from last summer's Public Works production of The Odyssey. See you in September in the park!
