ILLYRIA, A NEW MUSICAL BASED ON SHAKESPEARE'S
TWELFTH NIGHT, MAKES ITS REGIONAL THEATRE PREMIERE
AT THE SHAKESPEARE THEATRE OF NEW JERSEY
MADISON, NJ - "Let the merriment and the mirth prevail!" From November 30 through December 26, The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey presents the regional theatre premiere of Illyria, an exuberant new musical adapted from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel, with book, music and lyrics by Peter Mills.
Girl, disguised as boy, steals the hearts of both the lord and the lady in this festive comedy of unrequited loves and mistaken identities, directed by audience favorite Paul Mullins. Bursting with beautiful ballads and rollicking refrains, Illyria is a theatrical gem for all ages.
Performances are Tuesdays through Sundays at the company's Main Stage in Madison. Tickets for Illyria are $36 to $58, with discounts available for groups of 10 or more. For tickets, call 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
