ALMOST, MAINE and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM Set for Shakespeare Rep's 2014-15 Season
Shakespeare Rep has announced its 2014-15 season line-up. A Season of Wonders will pair two enchanting romantic comedies that spotlight the magic of love: Almost, Maine by John Cariani and William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The season opens on October 10 with Almost, Maine, a contemporary romantic comedy, at the USCB Center for the Arts. The quirky, offbeat comedy has broken box office records at theatres across the country, and is currently one of the most produced plays in America. The play has earned immense critical acclaim for its poignant exploration of loss and loss in a remote town in upstate Maine.
Shakespeare's superb comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream will play at the Center for the Arts from March 19-22. The production brings together some of the area's finest acting talent, along with guest artists from London, Chicago and Nashville. Artistic Director Debra Charlton remarks, "A Midsummer Night's Dream will be our most ambitious production to date. We are thrilled to bring together a world-class acting ensemble to stage one of Shakespeare's most luminous and joyful comedies."
Tickets for both productions are now on sale through the Center for the Arts website: www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
