VIDEO: Get an Inside Look at Shakespeare in the Square's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

Shakespeare in the Square presents William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream for an exclusive two-week engagement starting August 7 and running through August 19. Performances will take place at The Access Theater (380 Broadway, New York City) in The Gallery Space. Tickets are available at www.ShakespeareintheSquare.tix.com.

Coming off of its successful four-week tour along the east coast, this stripped-down production of Midsummer combines Shakespeare in the Square's quick and precise style with a dash of experimentation. The cast of six, all dressed in utilitarian jumpsuits, feast on Shakespeare's words with boldness and athleticism, weaving from scene to scene and portraying over 20 characters. They play on a bare tarp, with the only props being a variety of food-stuff; from dried oats, to blood oranges, to mashed potatoes, and marshmallow fluff, the food helps invoke feelings of childishness, sexiness and tiptoes the fine line between silliness and kink. You could think of it as a Food Fight Midsummer: unhinged, messy, and fun.

The cast includes Felix Birdie, Kimberly Chatterjee, Estefania Giraldo, Beth-Ann Hopkins, Constantine Malahias and Rebeca Miller.

The show has costume design by Richard Aaron and lighting design by Timothy Meola. The original set and prop design for the tour was by Olivia McGiff, and Angelina Margolis is designing sets and props for this production. Hannah Kallenbach serves as our associate director and food-play expert. Additional director credits include Abigail Wahl as fight director, Jorge Morales as music director, Chloe Troast as choreographer, and Samantha Hosi as assistant director. Lindsay Kipnis serves as production stage manager.

A Midsummer Night's Dream from Shakespeare in the Square performs at The Gallery Space at The Access Theater (380 Broadway, New York City) from Tuesday, August 7 through Sunday, August 19. The performance schedule is Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8:00 PM.
