  • Shakespeare's "TWELFTH NIGHT"

    RETURNING SEPTEMBER 2024



    Randall Sharp brings Drama-Desk nominated Axis Company’s signature stark and live musical touch to Shakespeare’s most painful comedy, "Twelfth Night", in a new streamlined adaptation by Marc Palmieri.⁠

    "…satisfying in its exactitude… Axis refers to ‘Twelfth Night’ as ‘Shakespeare’s most painful comedy,’ and that’s just what Sharp, Palmieri, and the superb cast deliver… ‘Twelfth Night’ demonstrates precisely what Sharp and Axis do best, whether offering an original play or a fresh take on an old chestnut." - THIS WEEK IN NEW YORK

    "The Axis Theatre Company’s new adaptation of Shakespeare’s 'Twelfth Night' is something to celebrate. Directed by Randall Sharp, and superbly performed by a 12-member ensemble cast, this 'Twelfth Night' is a wild and wonderful romp through Illyria." - OffOffOnline

    “Marc Palmieri’s brilliant adaptation… is pure story; accessible, lovely and flowing. Director Randall Sharp’s staging is clean and simple, allowing the heart of the story to be presented… there is a rainbow of color in the music of the play that adds all kinds of texture… the ensemble is prodigious, using the space with grace of movement that glides and flies from scene to scene. All strong solid performances.” - Front Row Center

    "...an elegantly streamlined and truncated staging… Sharp’s staging is clean and stylish, putting the emphasis on the work’s subtly shifting emotional landscape… live musicians are ingeniously incorporated into the fabric of the play, and they provide wonderful underscoring over the course of the performance (Paul Carbonara’s recurring love motif is particularly enchanting)… the acting is reliably solid… which lends itself to Sharp’s human-scaled version of Twelfth Night." - Interludes

    "…a perfect rendition of the twists and turns of this wonderful comedy… Director Randall Sharp… intricately brings “Twelfth Night” to life… her fluid direction of the cast allows them to drift across the stage lending an air of fantasy to the productions… The ensemble cast is up to the task of making Shakespeare more accessible without losing any of his mastery. No one should be intimidated by this production as it welcomes you into a fantasy world where reality is checked at the door." - Front Mezz Junkies
