This = Yes

Paul Chahidi & Jenny Tiramani from Shakespeare's Globe on Vimeo.

It was my extreme good fortune to be able to see this amazing production of Twelfth Night.  If you are in NYC, go see it.  Why are you still sitting here?  Go!

Really, I laughed 'til I cried.

And the costumes!  The actors get dressed on stage, which sounds a little gimmicky but really it is quite remarkable.  Somehow, although you see these people begin as regular, 21st Century people, by the time they are dressed, you are already forgetting that.  Minutes into the play, you are completely convinced that (1) it is the 16th Century and (2) men are women.

Ok, now please go see it.
