Set in a modern day playground, Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Tamilla Woodard, riffs on the culture of uber celebrity, where Oberon and Tatiana are the Kanye and Kim of the fairy world. As they argue, their immense celebrity and power creates a hysterical ripple effect in the mortal world.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of the most studied plays in the world and audiences of all ages should have the opportunity to see it live on stage. We are so excited to have a talent like Tamilla at the helm to create a world that is accessible and really showcases the joy of the language that was written hundreds of years ago. I could not be happier to see Masterworks Theater kick off its inaugural season with such an amazing cast and creative team. This is truly my dream come true.- Masterworks Founding Director, Eric Krebs.
