A Midsummer Night's Dream
In July, the Delacorte Theater will transform into the most enchanted forest in all of theater in Shakespeareâ€™s beloved comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHTâ€™S DREAM. When the merry sprite Puck meddles with a magical love potion, young lovers lost in the woods mysteriously find themselves infatuated with the wrong person in this hilarious, fairytale fantasia that proves the course of true love never did run smooth. Lear deBessonet, Founder of The Public Theaterâ€™s groundbreaking Public Works program and Resident Director, brings her electric theatrical vision to the classic romance about the supernatural nature of love.
A MIDSUMMER NIGHTâ€™S DREAM was first staged at the Delacorte Theater in 1982, directed by James Lapine with music by Allen Shawn, featuring Christine Baranski as Helena, Kevin Conroy as Lysander, and Paul Bates as Flute. It was later staged in 1991, directed by CacÃ¡ Rosset, and featuring Augusto Pompeo as Puck, Carolina N. Ribeiro as Helena, and Rubens CaribÃ© as Lysander. It was last staged at the Delacorte in 2007 directed by Daniel Sullivan, featuring Martha Plimpton as Helena, Laila Robins as Titania, Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Flute, and Jay O. Sanders as Bottom.
