An all-star cast of theatrical favorites comes together in this uproarious clash of A Midsummer Night's Dream and old-world fairy tales from Douglas Carter Beane.

One night in the woods, puckish mischief leads to mismatched lovers from across all your favorite stories. And what begins as love at first sprite, grows into something more as the feelings from one midsummer night carry over to the bright light of day.

So come and sit for a spell. Because in this theater, magic is real.

Fairycakes is proud to be the first production of the new season to work in allyship with Broadway for Racial Justice (www.bfrj.org) on creating a safe, equitable space for artists and audiences alike.
