William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night this Friday @ Bloombar. Performed by Wandering Souls

Wit, music, romance and revelry are the food of love in this comedic feast of lovers and fools. One of Shakespeare's most famous comedies - Twelfth Night is a play about love in all it's excess, the madness it can drive us to, the pain it gives us and finally the ability to heal that pain. Viola and her twin brother are shipwrecked in the magical land of Illyria, each believing the other drowned. Disguised as a young man, and entering the service of the lovesick Duke Orsino,Viola woos the wistful lady Olivia for her new master and finds herself in a most unusual and hilarious love triangle. Merry deceptions, mistaken identities and yellow stockings abound in this lilting comedy.
