“Twelfth Night” is never less than a delight. But the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s current production is so much more.

Go ahead, laugh. It’s an understandable reaction, considering that Southern Nevada is in the midst of a theatrical throw-down involving some of the funniest musical comedies of all time.
First Friday Las Vegas LLC, the organization that puts together the monthly First Friday arts festival, is taking a month off in July, but that doesn’t mean the artists and galleries will.
Back in the olden days, the ballet, symphony and a handful of theater companies toiled throughout the typical September-through-May season and struggled to survive.
