'Sebastian: Why! There's for thee! And there! And there!', c1875. Act IV, Scene I, from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. From The Illustrated Library Shakespeare.

Shakespeare's comedy, "Twelfth Night," tells the story of a young woman named Viola who disguises herself as a man after she ends up shipwrecked on the shores of an island. When Viola’s new boss, Duke Orsino, sends her to win over the Countess Olivia, Viola’s disguise proves too effective, and the Countess falls for her instead. Director/co-conceiver Kwame Kwei-Armah and actor Jose Llana, who stars as Duke Orsino, join us to discuss the Public Works production of "Twelfth Night” at the Delacorte Theater (81 Central Park West).
