Photo Flash: Meet the Cast of The Queens Players' A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
Fresh from their critically acclaimed, sold out productions of Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, Euripides' The Bacchae, and Macbeth, The Queens Players returns for its debut performance in the newly redesigned Little Theatre with a magical, Night Circus reimagining of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast below!
Director Illana Stein's vision of the dichotomy between the monochromatic mortal world of Athens and the black-light drenched, twilight infused circus-realm of the fairies will bring audiences right "into the tent" so to speak. True love will be tested, two worlds will collide, and mischief will be made.
Featuring: Charles Baker, Sheree V. Campbell, Jeff Dickamore, Jonathan Emerson, Kathleen Fletcher, Aurora Florence, Zack Friedman, Evan Greene, Megan Greener, Ryan Krause, Robin Rightmyer, Sabina Friedman-Seitz, Kate Siepert*, Blaine Smith*, Jason Spina, Marcus Watson and Jaz Zepatos.
