Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia doesn’t love him. When a mysterious young man named Cesario asks to be taken into Orsino’s service, Orsino thinks he’s perfect for the job of wooing Olivia. Olivia thinks Cesario’s perfect, period. Neither of them knows that Cesario is really a young woman named Viola…or that she’s in love with Orsino. While Olivia’s busy with all that, her uptight steward Malvolia is battling it out with her Falstaffian cousin Sir Toby Belch, his timorous BFF Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Feste the fool, and Maria. It’s a pretty hot mess even before Viola’s twin brother Sebastian arrives. But it’s a comedy, so it’ll all come out just fine in the end…right?
