"If music be the food of love, play on" - Twelfth Night
Join Lionel and Cecilia for a magical summer evening under a forest canopy featuring the opening night of Twelfth Night at Griffith Park's Old Zoo. This jazz age interpretation will have you tapping your toes. Before the performance we will enjoy a lovely Picnic Potluck Meet & Greet. "I love attending outdoor Shakespeare plays during the summer. But I couldn't schedule them at LAFC because they're plays--not concerts. However this production has live music so we can enjoy this as a group. Pretty awesome." - Co-Organizer Lionel. It's Ok to come by yourself, you won't be by yourself for long.℠
A cloud hangs over the country of Illyria as Countess Olivia mourns and Duke Orsino pines. But when Viola (a young woman with a big secret) washes onshore, it soon becomes clear that you can’t keep the human spirit down for long. Music, dance, and lovable misfits abound in one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time, all set against the backdrop of the jazz era.
■■■ PICNIC POTLUCK MEET & GREET ■■■
The best part of attending a play in the park is the picnic. This is where you'll make new friends and say "Hi" to old ones. A great way to meet someone is to offer them something! So... bring something to share! Either some wine or some finger eats such as charcuterie, salumi, cheeses, fresh produce such as grapes, dried fruits such as dates or nuts, olives, bread--foods that are easy to eat without utensils. No chips. And water! Technically alcohol is prohibited however if you drink responsibly you'll be fine. Bring a blanket to sit on. No chairs. Dress in layers and bring a jacket and a flashlight.
