About this Event
If music be the food of love... DRINK!
Eccentric Bear Theater Co. is proud to present the first play in its Shakespeare… with a twist! series: TWELFTH NIGHT!
After a shipwreck leaves Viola stranded on unfamiliar shores, she disguises herself as a man and becomes the servant to a lovesick Duke. What happens next is the timeless story of a girl dressed as a boy who falls in love with a boy who loves a girl who loves the girl dressed as a boy. Make sense? Hailed as one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, Twelfth Night is a tale of music, drunken revelry, and the kind of love that turns us all into fools.

ABOUT SHAKESPEARE...with a twist!
'Tis not thy grandam’s Shakespeare! Shakespeare… with a twist! is New York’s newest best night out – bringing you the violent, sexy, hysterical plays of William Shakespeare the way they were meant to be seen: while drinking!
Our no-frills, fast-paced performances of the Bard’s greatest works are coming to bars across NYC. In true 16th century fashion, we're tearing down the fourth wall and bringing our groundlings (that's YOU) directly into the action! Our merry band of actors has been rehearsing tirelessly for only a day, so you never know what surprises might be around yon corner!
And don't forget, whenever we forget a line... everyone drinks!
So welcome, royals and groundlings alike, to Shakespeare…with a twist! Sit back, relax, and let’s put the BAR back in Bard!
