The Public Theater Mobile Unit Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Directed by Saheem Ali
The Public’s Mobile Unit is a reinvention of Joseph Papp’s Mobile Shakespeare, which he began in 1957, evolving into the New York Shakespeare Festival and ultimately becoming The Public Theater. Joseph Papp, whose papers reside at The Library for the Performing Arts, had a simple idea—that Shakespeare belongs to everyone—and this idea remains at the heart of The Public Theater’s work to this day. The Library hosts a special presentation of Twelfth Night by the Mobile Unit, along with a pop-up exhibition of early Mobile Shakespeare artifacts from Joseph Papp papers.
