The acclaimed Shakespeare in the Park production of Twelfth Night, starring Anne Hathaway, Audra McDonald, Julie White and Raul Esparza, concludes its al fresco engagement at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park July 12.
Daniel Sullivan, the Tony-winning director of Proof, directed the Public Theater production, which began performances June 10 and officially opened June 25.
Academy Award-nominated actress Hathaway ("Rachel Getting Married") stars as Viola, who washes onto the verdant shores of Illyria and endeavors to disguise herself as a pageboy in the service of Duke Orsino, portrayed by four-time Tony nominee Raúl Esparza (Company, Speed-the-Plow). Disguised as Cesario, Viola finds herself the object of Lady Olivia's giddy affections, played by four-time Tony winner Audra McDonald (110 in the Shade, Master Class, Ragtime). When Viola's twin brother Sebastian, Stark Sands (Journey's End), is also swept onto Illyria's shores, Shakespeare's midsummer madness ensues.
Twelfth Night is also populated with comic turns from Tony-winning actress Julie White (The Little Dog Laughed) as Maria, two-time Tony nominee David Pittu (What's That Smell?) as the fool Feste, Hamish Linklater (The Busy World Is Hushed) as Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Jay O. Sanders (Midsummer Night's Dream) as Sir Toby Belch, Michael Cumpsty (Sunday in the Park with George) as Malvolio, as well as Herb Foster (A Midsummer Night's Dream) as Valentine, Kevin Kelly (Much Ado About Nothing) as Sea Captain, Baylen Thomas (Cyrano de Bergerac) as Curio and Jon Patrick Walker (Young Frankenstein) as Fabian.
Completing the ensemble are Charles Borland, Andrew Crowe, Steve Curtis, Clifton Duncan, David Kenner, Leslie Harrison, Slate Holmgren, Christopher Layer, Robin LeMon, Dorien Makhloghi, Ray Rizzo, Julie Sharbutt and Zach Villa.
Joining in the merriment are the Brooklyn-based folk-rock band Hem, who composed the original score for this incarnation of Twelfth Night. Band members include vocalist Sally Ellyson, pianist Dan Messe and guitarists Gary Maurer and Steve Curtis.
The production team includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Peter Kaczorowski (lighting design), Acme Sound Partners (sound design), Rick Sordelet (fight director) and Mimi Lieber (choreography).
Shakespeare in the Park previously staged Twelfth Night in 2002, starring Jimmy Smits, Julia Stiles, Kathryn Meisle and Zach Braff. Additional stagings have featured Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer (1989); Kim Greist, F. Murray Abraham and Peter MacNicol (1986); and Barbara Barrie and Ralph Waite (1969).

Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson star in the awful “Bride Wars,” an alleged comedy with a great 3-disc Blu-Ray edition that still can’t hide the awful movie underneath.
Liv (Hudson) and Emma (Hathaway) are best friends who have always dreamed of getting married at the Plaza Hotel. When their nuptials are accidentally scheduled for the same date, they begin torture campaigns against each other, trying to see who will flinch first and move their date or cancel their wedding altogether.
What were they thinking? Kate Hudson has made some bad choices in recent years, but would the young actress who shined so brightly in “Almost Famous” please come back? And Anne Hathaway should simply know better. It’s not hard to believe that “Bride Wars” hurt her Oscar campaign for “Rachel Getting Married”. It’s as drastic a leap from best film of her career to worst as nearly any actress has taken with back-to-back movies.

Anne Hathaway blended the exquisite with the sexy in a Louis Vuitton mini dress at the Cartier 100th Anniversary in America celebration at Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion on April 30 in New York City.
Hathaway, 26, showed off her long slender legs in the midnight blue dress with a black sheer lace overlay. She enhanced her dramatic looks with old fashion black sheer stockings showing seam at the back, riding down to her towering black peep toe heels, which exactly matched the ones that Demi Moore also wore to the same party!
The Devil Wears Prada star pushed the woman-love-diamonds adage to a new and dizzying height as she walked the red carpet loaded with exquisite Cartier jewelry, which included diamond drop earrings, a sapphire ring in her left hand middle finger and two diamond bracelets in her left arm.
Her dark brown wavy bob was styled with a side parting and swept away from her face on the left side, exposing the ear. She wore peach lipstick, blue eye shadow with black eyeliner and lots of black mascara.
Other Hollywood celebrities who attended the event, where 100 one-of-a-kind Cartier Collection creations were on display, included Demi Moore, Eva Mendes, Kate Hudson, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and Elton John.

Anne Hathaway has revealed that she believes true loves exists and her 'prince charming' is out somewhere.
The 'Devil Wears Prada' star had parted ways with Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri last year after he was arrested on fraud charges.
But that has not stopped the actress, who is now involved with actor Adam Shulman, from waiting for her "prince charming", reports the China Daily.
She said: "I think the perfect partner exists, of course I believe so. I know he's somewhere.
"My prince charming is kind, patient, has a sense of humour and rescues me from the dizzy, frenetic, fast-paced rhythm of this life."
Anne further confessed that despite her Hollywood success she was still not used to the attention and glamour.
She added: "The Venice Film Festival was a wonderful moment for me. At these events, I always feel like a little girl playing dress-up. I kept expecting that at any moment, someone would come up to me and say, 'How did you get in here?' and throw me out."
