Twelfth Night

When: March 1-19 2017

It's no accident that the publicity shots for PlayMakers Rep's upcoming production of Twelfth Night look like outtakes from a tony fashion magazine. When associate artistic director Jerry Ruiz decided to set one of Shakespeare's most frequently produced works in the Mediterranean in the 1950s, designer Anne Kennedy zeroed in on the work of Slim Aarons, a mid-century glamour photographer who shot what he called "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places" for society magazines, Town & Country, Holiday, and Life. Thus, a shipwrecked Viola crashes among—and becomes hired help for—the beautiful people, as jet-set socialites Duke Orsino and Lady Olivia take their ease in a coastal resort town. —Bryon Woods
