Ophelia Theatre Group presents this new comedy, a tribute to the happenings of a famous midsummer night that brings the magic to today’s baffling yet still enchanting world.

For people of the starry-eyed variety, some nights are more life changing than others. In times gone by, Athenians have flown to the forest in the name of love, acting troupes have gone to great lengths to be acknowledged and rewarded for their art, and fairies have wreaked all manner of mischief upon the mortal world for the sake of self-aggrandizement. But has anything really changed? 'Some Night' follows an eclectic band of characters as they pursue their dreams of love, power, fame, and fulfillment while struggling to reconcile their own ideas of fantasy and reality.

Ambitious, Entertaining, Uneven, Sweet

See it if You are interested in an updated, completely rewritten take on Midsummer Night's Dream.

Don't see it if You only like your Shakespeare presented traditionally.

Clever

See it if you want to see a nice funny show that is about music and band that takes place NOW in 2017.

Don't see it if you are looking to see a traditional show in a traditional theater.

Also I don't understand a damn thing about Shakespeare and when I hear this... Read more Read less

Funny, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You want a contemporary take on Midsummer Night's Dream. It was young devcast, but still fun and entertaining. They appeared to have fun.

Delightful, Romantic, Fun

See it if you want a not too serious modern take on 'midsummer's night'. Fun, enjoyable show.

Funny, Quirky, Indulgent, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You want a modern take on characters from Midsummer. You want to support a young, enthusiastic theatre company.

Don't see it if You want a polished script & performance: everything is a little too much-script too long, acting too broad.

Also While the play & performances are flawed, the company makes up for it ... Read more Read less

Funny, Clever, Quirky, Great staging

See it if It's a modern campy spinoff of Midsummer Night's Dream, w/sex, drugs & rock&roll faeries. James Jelkin/Puck masters the space like a fencer.

Don't see it if If you hate silliness & cheek, you'll probably not love this. But it's fun! Go! Be sure to dress warm. It was freezing in the theatre.

See it if you are up for a trip to Queens, you like Shakespeare comedies reinvented, experimental type theater, energetic young cast, imaginative!

Don't see it if you want your Shakespeare straightforward, you prefer something serious, you ain't going to Queens (though worth the trip, thankfully)

Also This was overall a delightful play, very enjoyable, high energy and im... Read more Read less
