"Being within earshot of the performers was mostly a matter of luck...But you have to adjust expectations when theater moves outdoors...The travails of the young lovers got a bit lost, while the scheming of Oberon and the mischief of Puck were similarly muted. But the rude mechanicals did well...'Pyramus and Thisbe,' the play within the play, is raucously silly fun...This 'Midsummer' is a little elusive, but it’s not a bad way to spend a beautiful evening outside in the city."
