Pride Films and Plays will complete its fun summer in Mary's Attic with the world premiere of BITE: A Pucking Queer Cabaret, PFP Artistic Associate Derek Van Barham's immersive, pop-rock ode to A Midsummer Night's Dream.

by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2016

Let the mischief and merriment begin in this sizzling summer reimagining of Shakespeare's most popular romantic comedy. In just one fantastic enchanted forest night, four magical stories are cleverly woven together: the marriage of the Athenian duke to the Amazon queen; the battle of the king and queen of the fairies; the lust and lunacy of four young lovers; and the hilarious antics of side-show actors who must stage a most important play. Enter a vibrant and bawdy world where fairies fly, a donkey bursts into song, and irresistible spells make your perspective on love turn on a dime. City Theatre's summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be an original and way-out theatrical experience you don't want to miss. (more...)
