“It’s one of the best and most innovative productions of Shakespeare’s lyric comedy.” — Curtain Up
An Appalachian Twelfth Night transports Shakespeare’s timeless comedy to 1938 Pikeville, Kentucky, an isolated coal-mining town. With music by the Appalachian band Rev. Karl and the Pikeville Pickers, this rousing production incorporates local folklore and much of the traditional music and dance handed down from the Elizabethean ancestors of these mountain dwellers.
