Winner of 2 AUDELCO Awards
Featuring Tony Award Nominee Kara Young
NYU Skirball will present The Classical Theatre of Harlem’s acclaimed production of Twelfth Night, winner of two 2022 AUDELCO Awards. The production is directed by AUDELCO Award-winner Carl Cofield, and features Tony nominee and AUDELCO Award-winner Kara Young, whose performance as Viola was cited as a “Best of 2022” by The New York Times.
The show had an outdoor run in July 2022 at Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park, playing to universally rave reviews. The New York Times called it “A shot of joy.” This Twelfth Night engages with the global conversation around equity and inclusion and features a majority-Black team of artists lead by director Carl Cofield, CTH’s Associate Artistic Director alongside associate director and choreographer Tiffany Rea-Fisher, EMERGE125’s Executive Artistic Director.
