A Rock'n'Roll Twelfth Night: Harlequin Productions
An Original Musical Comedy, with Apologies to William Shakespeare
Back by popular demand! The Harlequin stage is about to ignite with their rollicking musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, wherein Shakespeare's characters bear a striking resemblance to rock icons. An Elvis-like Duke Orsino carries a burnin’ love for the beautiful and Madonna-like Olivia. John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, Johnny Rotten, and Little Richard, among others, also become involved in Shakespeare’s uproarious comedy. Featuring music by Bruce Whitney and lyrics by Scot Whitney, each of the thirty original songs are performed in the style of their respective rockstar crooner.
