Fine Acting In ‘Twelfth Night’

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Every generation likes to offer its take on the works of Shakespeare. Franco Zeffirelli’s respectful 1968 version of “Romeo and Juliet” couldn’t be more different than Baz Luhrman’s brilliantly offbeat effort of this year, yet both are superb. Trevor Nunn’s “Twelfth Night” boasts the quality of neither, but it has moments of Shakespearean grandeur, not to mention fine, gender-bending acting. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
