Little West 12th Night

Critics' pick
Producer Connie Hall, who runs a dinner-theater company in Maine, animates the Meatpacking District with a creative twist on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. The show, presented as part of the 2012 undergroundzero festival, follows four guides who weave neighborhood history with invented gossip into his or her subplot. Each character leads a complete and yet distinct tour, and depending on the guide, you can get the scoop on where to buy designer hot pants, places to rent a room by the hour or even how to slaughter a cow. The tours feature different scenes, which means that visitors need to join the trek four times to experience the story in full. As in the Shakespeare play, which ends with three weddings, there is a sweet finish: Cake is served to the entire audience in the final scene.

I saw this show last night! I had a smile on my face the entire time. We had Toby as our guide and he took us all over the meet packing district; inside the Brass Monkey and the Standard Hotel [we went into a hotel room and all [approximately 15 of us] piled into a bathtub while covertly watching Malvolio do a strip tease out the window for all to see...We met up with other characters in the story while getting a history tour of the Meatpacking district. There are four groups going at the same time, so your experience depends on who your tour guide is....but there is no doubt in my mind that each tour was as entertaining, fun and creative as the next. The timing/production of the show is the best part....only a few shows left.....a must see!
