PODCAST: Sara Holdren

It’s been called the perfect romantic comedy. Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night" begins with sister-brother twins losing each other in a shipwreck, leading to a high-spirited tale of gender-bending and mixed-up love affairs.

Director Sara Holdren recalls falling in love with Shakespeare at a very early age, and the creative fun of interpreting his plays. Hint: She’s making the most of the music in the production, collaborating with the band and theater collective, The Lobbyists. “Twelfth Night” is on stage at Two River Theater in Red Bank, NJ through February 2, 2020.
