BroadwayWorld was on the scene this week alongside Julie Taymor, Reeve Carney, Helen Mirren, Anne Hathaway and numerous others on the opening night of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. In partnership with A Theatre for a New Audience, acclaimed Broadway director, Julie Taymor presents a re-imagined A Midsummer Night's Dream.

A Midsummer Night's Dream brilliantly conjoins four intertwined stories: the marriage of the Athenian Duke Theseus to the Amazon queen Hippolyta; the warring Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the fairies; the madcap follies of four lovers in a forest; and the comically earnest efforts of a group of working men to stage a love-play for the royal wedding. Lysander loves Hermia, whose father wants her to marry Demetrius. Helena loves Demetrius, who chases the eloping Lysander and Hermia into the woods, pursued by Helena. They are all fair game for mischievous Puck, Oberon's servant, who scrambles their desires and Titania's. As the working men press faithfully on with their rehearsals, the otherworldly night of confusion, passion and diligence proves oddly momentous, touching every life to the quick
