The Joys of Com Headache

Best shows I’ve seen - “Twelfth Night” at the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington DC.

It took place around the time of the sinking of the Lusitania and it beautifully combined music from that era as well as costumes and set pieces to make an original and artistic show.

Malvolio’s cross gartered stockings were not just stockings but a 1920s bath suit that made him look like a bumblebee and Malvolio and the fool were the models of comic perfection.


It was beautiful as you can tell by the set and lighting.

    Ooh! I would LOVE to see an adaptation of Twelfth Night where it was set in the 1920s era! That would be magnificent!...
