BWW Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM by Orlando Shakes Photo BWW Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM by Orlando Shakes
by Joseph Harrison - Apr 10, 2021

In William Shakespeare‚Äôs beloved comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, a motley cast of characters find themselves in an idyllic forest filled with magic and wonder. So, it is quite apropos that Orlando Shakes‚Äô current production of this timeless classic is being offered outdoors, at a park (Lake Eola Park) in a beautiful setting by the water. And like the young lovers and the ‚ÄúMechanicals‚ÄĚ who enter the woods not knowing how their lives will change before the night is through, audiences seated in the Walt Disney Amphitheatre are in for an evening of magic and merriment ‚Äď one that, I must say, is long overdue.

BWW Review: Theater West End Goes All Out for ONCE ON THIS ISLAND with an In-House Be Photo BWW Review: Theater West End Goes All Out for ONCE ON THIS ISLAND with an In-House Beach and Crazy-Talented Cast
by Aaron Wallace - Oct 21, 2019

ONCE ON THIS ISLAND comes to life with mounds of sand, full-fledged shacks, an overturned boat that doubles as a platform, a wood-planked bridge, and a running stream of water that curls around the stage in a rock-lined canal. Let me repeat: they built a river that flows through the theatre. It's the most impressive set I've seen here, and that's saying something. At one point, rain falls down from the ceiling all around the stage, as if to replenish the river as it evaporates under Derek Critzer and Jonathan Scaringella's lively light design.
