A Midsummer Night's Dream - Off-Broadway

Shakespeare's beloved, effervescent tale of love and chaos. Mischievous fairies, quarreling lovers, and a floundering amateur acting troupe take center stage in this delightful tale of joy and romance that famously-and with timeless relevance-declares, "Lord, what fools these mortals be." A Midsummer Night's Dream follows Doyle's staging, at the start of the current CSC season, of Shakespeare's Macbeth, featuring Corey Stoll and Nadia Bowers.
