About the Show

The Drilling Company presents the Bard's timeless comedy of dueling lovers, warring fairies, and a comically inept band of actors. Part of the troupe's free outdoor Shakespeare season.

Time Out New York
July 8th, 2016

"There’s nothing groundbreaking about Curtiss’s production...But we come here to escape, and escapism is what we get: Curtiss’s actors throw themselves into the merry chaos, leaning into the play’s farcical slapstick...At times, the performances are overly broad. But the mechanicals’ presentation of 'Pyramus and Thisbe…in Space!' is a camp delight...This 'Midsummer' is decidedly uncool, but it’s so sincere and game for anything that you can’t help rooting for it all the same."

"I was most taken by the performance of Kathleen Simmonds as Helena...Warren Jackson as Oberon is striking...Serena Miller is a spirited Titania. Eddie Shields is a persuasive Lysander...I was less thrilled by the choice to make Quince’s players a collection of computer nerds and, if anything could be shortened, it might be the treatment of the 'Pyramus and Thisbe' play at the end. But all in all, Shakespeare in the Parking Lot is an experience...Here you can feast on Shakespeare."
