Twelfth Night," directed by UNO Professor Cindy Melby Phaneuf, opens April 15 at the UNO Theatre. It's the director's third time working with this play, and her first opportunity to work with a student cast. UNO theater major Xin Shao spoke with Phaneuf regarding "Twelfth Night," beginning with a brief plot synopsis.
You can't walk very well (even if you're sober) because the floor is covered in sweat and booze - and maybe even some other bodily fluids.

Your hair is soaking wet, you may or may not have the shirt on that you originally had at the beginning of the night. Most importantly, you have a grin reaching from ear to ear.
