A Midsummer Night's Dream

Regional Play - Comedy Regional — 

Julie Taymor, Tony Award winner for direction of The Lion King, is an artist internationally acclaimed for her bold and original imagination. For our inaugural production, she stages Shakespeare’s joyous comedy about the universal theme of love and its complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, marriage.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream brilliantly conjoins four intertwined stories: the marriage of the Athenian Duke Theseus to the Amazon queen Hippolyta; the warring Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the fairies; the madcap follies of four lovers in a forest; and the comically earnest efforts of a group of working men to stage a love-play for the royal wedding.

Taymor’s vision will be a fantasia of light and shadow. The stage will breathe with the miraculous charms and powerful illusions of love.

Direction: Julie Taymor
Original Music: Elliot Goldenthal
Featuring Tina Benko, Max Casella, David Harewood, and Kathryn Hunter in a company of 36 actors
