2 years ago today, this motley group of artists helped to create #ETGTwelfthNight and we opened our workshop production at The Tank in Times Square. We had about 12 rehearsals (during which most of the music was written) and 1 tech run through. We sold out 6 performances and moved to FringeNYC - The New York International Fringe Festival the following summer, becoming a Time Out New York "Best Of Fringe"!

2 years ago today, our first casting notice for a new folk music filled production of Shakespeare's classic tale of gender-bending love went live (with only a few songs written). We went on to be a Time Out New York "Best of Fringe" in #FringeNYC soon after, recording 10 songs by Conly Basham.

For the first time ever...we've got a video of recording "It's Illyria" for Twelfth Night!

Originally written by Josh Freilich and Conly Basham for the ensemble, the song ended up changing to be sung by Antonio and Sebastian.
