Long Island University Department of Communication Studies, Performance Studies and Theatre Presents "Twelfth Night"
"Love sought is good, but given unsought better," says Olivia in William Shakespeare's delightful comedy, "Twelfth Night," where the characters are pursuing, or being pursued as, objects of love. In order to win love, they’ll do anything, even dress like the opposite gender! This version is set in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Great music, hilarious disguises, mistaken identity and love triangles create a high-class, high-stakes game where anything can happen. As they say in New Orleans, "Laissez les bon temps rouler!" (Let the good times roll!) Tickets: $15; $12 for seniors and students
