Titan Theatre Company's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM to Transfer Off-Broadway
Producer Kevin Beebee announced today that Titan Theatre Company's critically acclaimed 2013 production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, where audiences pulled actor roles out of a hat each night just seconds prior to showtime, will play Off Broadway in 2014. Casting, creative team, venue and show dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
"We were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response from critics and audiences during our sold out limited run in November and we're proud to be presenting this daring and innovative take on Midsummer to a wider audience in Manhattan," said Kevin Beebee, Producer and Managing Director of Titan Theatre Company. "Our announcement comes as Long Island City's Times Ledger named Titan's Midsummer "Outstanding Production" and "Outstanding Ensemble" of 2013 just this morning, singling out each of the nine in the 2013 run and the show's director and Titan Theatre Company Artistic Director Lenny Banovez for their talents and achievement last Fall."
