Photo Flash: First Look at A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Great Lakes Theater
Great Lakes Theater (GLT) commences its 2017-18 season at the Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square with a Fall Repertory that features the soaring musical epic in its Midwest premiere, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Shakespeare's magical comic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night's Dream. The productions are being performed in rotating repertory through November 5, 2017. Joseph Hanreddy directs A Midsummer Night's Dream. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast of 'Midsummer' in action below!
Northeast Ohio native and Baldwin Wallace University alum, Corey Mach, returns from Broadway to head up The Hunchback of Notre Dame in the lead role of Quasimodo. Seen on Broadway in Hands on a Hardbody and Godspell, Mr. Mach also plays the lover, Lysander, in GLT's rotating repertory production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Shakespeare's magical comic masterpiece, A Midsummer Night's Dream completes GLT's Fall Repertory pairing. An exhilarating tale of midsummer madness, this memorable comedy brims with mistaken identity, mismatched lovers and mischief-making fairies. Shakespeare's charming comedy ensnares myriad lovers and a rustic troupe of would-be actors in a joyful celebration of love lost, transformed and restored - casting a powerfully pleasing spell on audiences of all ages.
Single performance tickets range in price from $15-$80 (Student tickets are $13) and are available by calling (216) 241-6000, by ordering online or by visiting the Playhouse Square Ticket Office.
