Director's Notes

I can vividly remember the moment last summer, during a rehearsal for Cyrano, when the concept for this production danced into my head. I was talking with my friend Ken about our common memories of trips to New Orleans, of the ability of both visitors and residents alike to just "let go", to give into the spirit of the party - "just like those crazies from 12th Night". I mean, think about it - the twins are washed up on a magical isle where everyone just wants to party! And that was all it took...
