Tucson, AZ – March 3, 2017

“It’s amazing to me that something over 400 years old is still as funny today as it was then,” said Theatre Professor and Arizona Repertory Theatre Artistic Director, Brent Gibbs, when speaking of Shakespeare’s TWELFTH NIGHT. Gibbs’ mere mention of a scene that UA Theatre students rehearsed the night before provoked chuckles from a colleague nearby, Lighting Design Professor Deanna Fitzgerald, who also was present for the rehearsal. “It’s hilarious,” Fitzgerald said. “The students laugh so hard and they’ve seen it many times already.” Gibbs added that this production of TWELFTH NIGHT is timeless, and full of beauty and romance, in addition to being funny.
