Photo Coverage: Paper Mill's A Midsummer Night's Dream Opens

Lea Delaria stars as Bottom in a new production of Shakespeare's enchanted comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is staged by Tina Landau. The play marks the first joint production of the McCarter Theatre and the Paper Mill Playhouse--two of the preeminent theatres in New Jersey. A Midsummer Night's Dream first played the McCarter Theatre from March 21st through April 16th, and currently runs at Paper Mill through May 21st (it opened on April 21st).

In addition to DeLaria, the show features Guy Adkins as Puck, Will Fowler as Demetrius, Jay Goede as Oberon/Theseus, James Martinez as Lysander, Ellen McLaughlin as Titania/Hippolyta, Stacey Sargeant as Hermia and Brenda Withers as Helena. According to press notes, A Midsummer Night's Dream "involves two sets of lovers whose romantic escapades are complicated by their entrance into the play's fairyland woods where the King and Queen of the Fairies preside. The impish character Puck creates mischief when he meets a merry band of players and the star crossed lovers."
