A Midsummer Night's Dream - 2015 - Off-Broadway

Shakespeare’s lush tale of the ecstasies of love and loss, Midsummer tosses four lovers into the strangest, most magical night of their lives. In the woods of Athens, they dive into a world ruled by the whims of passion, play, and jealousy—and none of them come out unchanged. Directed by Bedlam Theater’s innovative Eric Tucker, five versatile actors will live out Bottom’s fantasy of playing all the roles in this celebration of the transformative and intoxicating power of love.

Co-produced with HUDSON VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL, and performed in repertory with THE CHAIRS.
