BWW Review: A 'Midsummer' to End All SummersBWW Review: A 'Midsummer' to End All Summers
by Kristen Morale - Aug 30, 2015

Watching Shakespeare's play come to life on the sandy shores of Chatham, Massachusetts is a rather interest thing to behold. Hippolyta lounges on a beach chair near the ocean while the mischievous Puck jovially dances onto the stage wearing an Anglers jersey. Cape Cod is to be found everywhere, yet Monomoy has still managed to keep the Shakespearean spirit alive and well in its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The characters have remained the same: Theseus and Hippolyta still plan on being wed, Helena entreats after the love and affection of the unwilling Demetrius, who instead views the fair Hermia as his darling one - a love interest shared with the doting Lysander, whom Hermia finds dear. The fairy King and Queen, in addition to those that serve them, still wreak havoc on the lives of each other as well as on the unsuspecting humans below, stealing from them their gift of free will and forcing them to see what they would not have otherwise seen. A group of men anticipating their performance before Theseus and his new bride at their wedding run into trouble when their lead is given an animal's head. Confusion and inexplicable events still run rampant, and this story remains as entertaining and riveting as ever - this is without a doubt true. (more...)

by Jay Irwin - Aug 30, 2015

If you're a company thinking of doing the rock musical of "Spring Awakening" you need to be ready for it, not only as it's such a difficult show but since it was just done in the area a few years ago and to such acclaim. And while I applaud fledgling company Chandelier Production's courage in taking on such a tough show not to mention their model of using their proceeds to support local LGBTQ charities such as Peace from the Streets by Kids from the Streets, their current production shows that they are not mature enough of a company to handle this demanding show as there were so many issues vocally, theatrically and technically.
