A Re-Imagined Classic, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare
Directed by Christopher Ashley
A Victorian Court turns upside-down — literally — when forbidden lovers escape into the forest and a jilted fiancé follows in hot pursuit. Artistic director Christopher Ashley brings his unique, gravity-defying vision to this classic play that's for anyone who has ever felt the giddy weightlessness of true love. Featuring puppetry and an onstage orchestra performing original music as well as Mendelssohn's beloved score.
