NEW YORK NEO-CLASSICAL ENSEMBLE
TO PRESENT

“TWELFTH NIGHT”

Featuring Live Indie Rock Band

January 8 – 24, 2009

NEW YORK NEO-CLASSICAL ENSEMBLE (STEPHEN STOUT, Artistic Director, BILL GRIFFIN, Managing Director) is pleased to announce its production of “TWELFTH NIGHT” by William Shakespeare, directed by STEPHEN STOUT.  The production opens on Thursday, January 8 at 8:00 pm at THE KIRK THEATRE on Theatre Row.  Performances continue Friday, January 9 and Saturday, January 10, and Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 pm, through Saturday, January 24.  Tickets are $18 ($15 for students) and can be purchased visiting www.ticketcentral.com.  The KIRK THEATRE, TheatreRow Studios, Inc., is located at 410 W. 42nd Street, between 9th Avenue and Dyer.

NYNeo-Classical Ensemble’s TWELFTH NIGHT reflects the joy and doubt of a young generation dealing with a world of uncertainty. Shakespeare’s comedy about the lengths we go to reach those we love is combined with a live band, playing a fresh indie rock score that sounds like it was downloaded from iTunes this morning.
