Dizzying, Confusing, Entertaining, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if you would enjoy a new take on the Bard's play - this one with some local references and a hard working troupe. Interesting light projections

Don't see it if you want an understandable version of MND. This is a liberal interpretation that will leave anyone without complete grasp of this play lost.

Great writing, Ambitious

See it if Bit of a swing and a miss - they're trying to do something new (audience chooses who plays what role, though I think it was decided already)

Don't see it if It's...fine. It's well enough acted and staged, but you've seen better Midsummers. splitting the woods/mechanicals scenes didn't work for me
