Midsommer Flight’s popular perennial intimate production of Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT, performed alley style amid the flowers of the Lincoln Park Conservatory’s beautiful Show House Room, will return with a new cast for its fifth year. The production will depart from the company’s previous stagings in its modern dress costumes evocative of wealthy elites of the early 20th Century. Shakespeare’s characters will look wonderful and wealthy, colorful and different but they are masking an inner pain. The production will again include the original musical score by Elizabeth Rentfro and Alex Mauney from previous productions.
