TWELFTH NIGHT RETURNS!

NYU Skirball presents CTH’s “Twelfth Night,” the hit show that made The New York Times Best of 2022 and winner of two AUDELCO Awards. Starring Tony nominee Kara Young as Viola.

"THIS IS ONE OF THOSE PRODUCTIONS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL LUCKY TO BE IN NEW YORK"

- THE NEW YORK TIMES

"You have not seen a Viola like Young’s fierce, funny, fully inhabited Viola. And if your nerves are as frayed as so many of ours are, you could do with the beautiful balm that is this show, working its magic beneath the summer sky as dusk turns to dark."

- THE NEW YORK TIMES
