You never forget that a shipwreck sets the plot in motion in this summer's Central Park Delacorte Theater staging of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, because the ruined vessel is right there on stage. It sits at the top of Walt Spangler's undulating set, an uninterrupted series of wooden planks painted sea blue and bent to resemble a rolling ocean.
The production stars Julia Stiles as Viola, Kristen Johnston as Maria, Christopher Lloyd as Malvolio, Zach Braff as Sebastian, Oliver Platt as Sir Toby Belch and Jimmy Smits as Orsino at The Delacorte Theatre in Central Park through Aug. 11.
