Bedlam Theatre Company will stage William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night; or What You Will, played in two different ways on alternating nights with only five actors.

Directed by Bedlam's artistic director Eric Tucker, performances will begin March 11 with an official opening night scheduled for March 22 at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre Off-Broadway.

Here is how the unique production is billed: "[Bedlam] will present Shakespeare’s classic comedy Twelfth Night in rotating repertory with itself: Twelfth Night (or what you will) and What You Will (or Twelfth Night). One play, two completely different ways, with the same five actors."

The cast features Edmund Lewis, Andrus Nichols, Eric Tucker, Tom O’Keefe and Susannah Millonzi, all original cast members of Bedlam's earlier acclaimed and award-winning productions of Saint Joan and Hamlet.

The show features costumes by Valerie Bart and lighting design by Les Dickert.

Tickets are now available at theatrebedlam.org. The Dorothy Strelsin Theatre is located at 312 W. 36th St.
