- SHAKESPEAREAN COMEDY - "If music be the food of love, play on." Join Mu on the shores of Illyria, where ship-wrecked Viola starts a new life in the court of Count Orsino. As the melancholy clown Feste, Randy Reyes leads a large ensemble cast in this immersive production, marking Mu’s first foray into Shakespeare since our popular 2006 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Mu’s shimmering conclusion to the 14-15 Season, this lively and accessible Asian American-inspired romp features a score of live music and loads of physical comedy.

  • "Mu’s gender-bending production puts a fresh spin on Shakespeare." ~Star Tribune

  • ""Twelfth Night" is always about the folly of love but, in Mu Performing Arts' swift and gender-blind production, it takes on new shades of meaning." ~The Pioneer Press

  • "A must-see. I repeat, a must-see." ~MN Theater Love
