Shakespeare's rollicking tale of magic, confusion, betrayal, love, and friendship gets a contemporary makeover in NY Shakespeare Exchange's new production. More…
"Would you ever really want to meet a fairy?" In a time when belief in magic has faded from our world, a group of actors rehearsing scenes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" in the woods happen upon a lonely fairy. Driven by a sense of joyful mischief, he enchants them to perform for him.
See it if you appreciate individual talent. The actors themselves for the most part were very good and could switch between characters with ease.
Don't see it if you suffer from secondhand embarrassment. Staging and unnecessary dancing was very cheesy and detracted from the cast and the play itself.
