THEATER William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is a topsy-turvy world which the clown character Feste describes as a place where, “nothing that is so, is so.” Genders are reversed, issues of class are put into question, and matters of courtesy, humanity, revenge and retribution are primary. Love and music may always be in the air, but that music and romance are often jarring and discordant, with a conclusion that is bittersweet, with as much uncertainty as revelry and folly. November 19 and 20 at 8 p.m.; November 21 at 2 and 8 p.m.; and November 22 at 2 p.m. $11 general admission or $6 for students, staff, faculty and seniors. Pomona College’s Seaver Theatre, 333 N. College Way, Claremont.
