Only Six Nights Until Twelfth Night

Posted by on October 3, 2011

I won’t always be posting video ads for shows, but this short promo for Westport Country Playhouse’s forthcoming production of Twelfth Night is rather process-oriented, and I’m always fascinated by how director Mark Lamos does his Shakespeare. He’s got a magical ability to get ensemble casts to uniformly grasp the bard’s meter and scansion so that they actually sound like they’re talking to each other and not reading out of a poetry book.
Although he made his reputation with his Shakespeare productions when he ran Hartford Stage from the late 1970s into the mid-‘90s, this is the first Shakespeare play that Lamos has done as artistic director of Westport Country Playhouse. It’s also only the third in the 80-year history of the theater, which began as a star-studded summer stock house in 1931.
Twelfth Night has its first preview performance Oct. 11. The press opening is Oct. 15.
