Twelfth Night

TWELFTH NIGHT

February 9 (All day) - February 13 (All day)

Two worlds collide in this new take on Shakespeare’s lyrical “Twelfth Night.” Great Britain’s Filter Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company pair classical verse with a riotous gig in this radically cut and fast-paced story of romance, satire, and mistaken identity. Check it out at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 9, at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, 3680 Walnut St. Additional performances run through Saturday, Feb. 13. Info: 215-898-3900 or www.annenbergcenter.org. $20-$35.
