A storm shipwrecks an up-and-coming music duo, twins Viola and Sebastian. The pair end up in the land of Illyria, which looks very much like New York City, circa 1968. And the rest is Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night–well, kind of.
With its frisky light-rock score, anything-goes philosophy, and outrageous visuals, Your Own Thing captured the zanier aspects of the rebellious energy and experimentation of the Sixties–but there was nothing in it to scare Grandma. While Hair played uptown, Your Own Thing ran Off-Broadway for 937 performances and toured the country.
We’re delighted to rediscover this gem and give the first New York presentation in decades. Will there ever will be another chance to see this show? Who knows. Don’t miss the fun and do Your Own Thing.
