MY EVIL TWIN is an intimate new musical starring identical twin opera singers James and John Demler as themselves. The Demler brothers take a freewheeling comic journey through the agony and ecstasy of shared genetics. As they come of age in story and song, the twin singers give literal expression to the search to find one’s own voice in the world.

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended, as space is limited. Please plan to arrive early as latecomers will not be able to be admitted.

The show runs about 75 minutes.

For reservations, contact

For Directions and Parking: Please park as if you are attending a show in the Holden Theater. Ko Festival interns will help guide you up the hill to Webster Hall. For those with mobility issues, there is limited parking at the top of the hill in back of Webster.
