MIDSUMMER (A Play with Songs) features celebrated Chicago actors Chaon Cross and Patrick Mulvey.

A rowdier, Scottish-ier version of Once, MIDSUMMER (A Play with Songs) is a wickedly funny retelling of one seemingly mismatched couple's lost weekend of wine, song, shagging, and outrageous parking fees. Accompanying themselves on a range of instruments, Mr. Mulvey and Ms. Cross belt out the joyous folk-pop score in this one-of-a-kind production that is a genuine love letter to the great city of Edinburgh-and the un-Hollywood endings you just might find there!

The production team includes Mark Smith (scenic design), Ellen MacKay (costume design), Brandon Wardell (lighting design), Anthony Churchill (sound and production design), Dan Plehal (movement design), Becca McCracken (casting director), Ron Rude (production manager) and Andrew Hatcher (stage manager).
