Illyria, or What You Will

Press Opening

10/23/2018 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

Illyria, or What You Will, freely adapted from Twelfth Night by Jonelle Walker and Mitchell Hebért, directed by Mitchell Hebért.

Illyria reimagines Shakespeare's crossed-signal love story in a downtown Manhattan '80s dive bar, where the habitués are club kids of assorted genders and orientations who have come to the one place where they can be who they are. Walker's play TAME., a feminist take on The Taming of the Shrew, was produced by Avant Bard in 2016 and received a Helen Hayes Award nomination. Hebért has received Helen Hayes Awards for both acting ( After the Fall) and directing ( Glengarry Glen Ross), in addition to other nominations as an actor and director.
