Subject: "Illyria" at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey
To all those Shaksper-eans out there in the New York metropolitan area
(especially the New Jersey suburbs and the city), the Shakespeare
Festival of New Jersey just opened an absolutely delightful musical
version of Twelfth Night called Illyria by Peter Mills and Cara Reichel.
It's a regional premiere, not a retread of one of the previous musical
This is a first-rate, professional production by an Equity company. The
theater is located on the Drew University campus in Madison, NJ, on a
direct train line out of New York and easy access by car.
The production will run through December 26 and is a holiday confection
suitable for families. Performances are Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m.,
Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m.
and Sundays at 7 p.m. There are no public performances on Dec. 24 or 25.
Regular tickets range from $44 to $58. The theater holds about 300
people, with no seat more than 32 feet from the stage! The theater is
handicapped accessible too. For information and tickets, call the box
