“Love given sought is good, but given unsought is better”. So states 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! In this LIU version, the play will be 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!)
