Titan Theatre Company has also just announced that its smash hit production of William Shakespeare's comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, where audience members selected actor roles from a hat each night just moments before the show began, will transfer Off Broadway in 2014. The original production played a limited three-week engagement to sold-out audiences in Long Island City in the fall of 2013, earning unanimous praise from critics and audiences. Details on the run will be announced in the spring.
