Shakespeares Twelfth Night is an entertaining and captivating romantic comedy of light and shade placed in a festive atmosphere in which three couples are brought together happily This was a greatly entertaining production that brought life and lightheartedness to basic social concerns and the concept of love triangles that universally cross time and generations I believe it was important to realize the play is not completely realistic to allow for empathy with certain characters and to allow myself to relate to the situations Overall this production was more than just entertaining it was thought provoking and at times emotional I believe this production allowed the audience to empathize with the characters though it is imperative to view the play as not intended to be realistic to allow for empathy To have a comedy of complete humor there would be no balance and hence no avenue for audience interaction I think the balance of tragedy to comedy allowed the play to have its desired effect I also think the characters are plausible or realistic at least for their time I saw the characters of Twelfth Night are neither bluntly humorous nor completely tragic but rather a skilled balance of both that fit the plot well I believe the ideas in this play to have merit I saw Twelfth Night as largely about social concerns The social messages in Twelfth Night were largely about the need for a balance in life and that you should not judge on appearance as they can be deceptive and also the importance of self awareness and the humor in the lack of Humor is used in conjunction with pain in order to contrast the comedy and accentuate the themes The plot of Twelfth Night explores many social issues in its comedy yet is also not unrestrained in its humor Reason and logic are important to organization and the suspension of disbelief that is why Twelfth Night follows many conventions as far
