Quirky, Beautifully spoken, Strong intentions, Lovely space, Marvelous character actors

See it if you have not seen Midsummer in a while and want to enjoy the beautiful language. This company uses exquisite diction. a few wonderful actors

Don't see it if you want magic and fantasy. Some of the interpretations are just odd. I like that they are definite but disagree with some of the choices

It's amsnd for gods sake, Can be delightful, Decent rendition, Many notes are hit-some are not, Colorful

See it if you've enjoyed Frog&Peach b4, if you've never seen AMSND b4, you've enjoyed Mechanicals shenanigans b4, if Shakespeare is on your 2 do list

Don't see it if less than perfect elocution, blocking, character development, costuming, staging, or a community theatre vibe would prevent your enjoyment

Abridged shakespeare., Uneven acting., Unfocused direction.

See it if You like AMND and want a generally fast-paced version. This is modern dress, bare bones, stylized set. Cast was energetic. Puck was good.

Don't see it if Like the bard pure or expect the actors will help you understand what’s being said. I know this play & it never enchanted. 2nd act better Read more

Enchanting, Delightful, Entertaining

See it if You like Shakespeare and you enjoy a fairly middle-of-the road, not-very-ambitious take on it.

Don't see it if You're afraid of lions.

Great staging, Intelligent, Relevant, Uneven acting

See it if you want to support an enthusiastic company's efforts; you enjoy Shakespeare; you'll enjoy a stripped down version of a classic.

Don't see it if you only enjoy Shakespeare when it's performed by the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) or the equivalent. Read more

Ok bard-ophiles, u know the drill: it's faeries vs. lovers vs. mechanicals, Funny, Mix of veteran actors & newbies keep shakespeare alive!

See it if Die-hard Bard fans are in for some chuckles, especially from the experienced band of "Mechanicals" that steal the show w/ Pyramus & Thisbe!!

Don't see it if IF you are a stickler for appropriate vocal volume, 1 of the veterans thought he was performing in Central Park. A bit prudish costuming 2??

Delightful, Entertaining, Refreshing, Clever, Funny

See it if you like Shakespeare and enjoy seeing a classic play done with energy and excitement, creativity and curious choice. Loved the costumes too!

Don't see it if you don't like Shakespeare nor one with less-than-classic production values. The great bard should be played for everyone!.

"A very cute and entertaining production...Benson does an excellent job at bringing this play to life...It is the cast which is easily what makes this particular production worth going to see. Standing out among this talented ensemble is Marcus Watson, who proves to be particularly energetic and versatile in the role of Puck...This was a very playful, colorful, and delightful production of a classic play."
