This show was spectacular. We laughed so much. This is a must see. The entire experience was great. Get there early so you can walk around the Japanese garden . A fun time will be had by all.

The play was delightful. It was so humorous. The actors were marvelous. It was an interesting interpretation of the play. Driving to the locale was interesting. I did get lost since it is tricky to get into the grounds of the Veterans...continued

We took our kids for their first Shakespeare experience with a little trepidation. Turned out to be a great success. The show was well-done, accessible, and very entertaining. Excellent performances across the board. The setting was beautiful,...continued

Just a magnificent night of theater. The venue is beautiful, the cast is extraordinary-- almost everything about the production is top notch. I had some reservations about some of the music-- in particular, the three songs that open the show had...continued

It was a wonderful experience. Some difficulty finding the place partly because of the FWY interchange w/o signs for West on Wilshire from the South. Then in the VA not enough signage. But we managed and had a wonderful time.

After we found the place, parking was a dream. The Veterans who volunteered for the evening were very helpful. The Japanese Garden was pretty, but we didn't really look around much.
The performance was wonderful. My niece, who is studying the...continued

One of the best productions of Midsummer that I've seen. The acting was amazing, there wasn't one wasted word - Shakespeare put it all in there and this ENTIRE cast got it right. The whole time I was thinking, "wow, when Shakespeare is done...continued

This is the second play by this company and as with the last, I thoroughly enjoyed it. the modern twists on an old and wonderful story do nothing to detract from the poets intent, and, for me, makes it that much more relatable and interesting. ...continued

Loved the show, the actors, the venue, the music, the unique direction of this version of AMSND from the Bard. My young kids also loved the show which proves that Shakespeare can be very accessible when done by people who know what they are doing....continued

Wow! This was one of the best productions of MSND I've seen and I've seen many!! Clever concept with so many belly laughs. Shakespeare has never been easier to understand. Standout performances by Marcella Lenz-Pope as Hermia (a young, vivacious,...continued

A tremendous experience by a stellar company. Will Shakespeare himself would have had a rollicking time in that venue with those people. They got the reality of the play - it was a comment on the court and the players who played there, both on and...continued

At first I thought, oh no, it is not going to be "my cup of tea" with the singing, but after that changed my mind. It was very enjoyable, funny, well acted, and on the whole, a good rendition of Shakespeare. I am very fussy, since I was weaned...continued

I truly enjoyed this performance and loved that I watched a play outside at night. So cool. The environment was Romantic and it was healthy to get all that fresh air. We were cooled off a bit by a Mid-Summer Nights drizzle that lasted only a few...continued

It was a wonderful play.. actors were great.. But I wish they had period costumes instead of the modern-day version.

Most hilarious production of MSND I've ever seen. Beautiful venue (woods for the lovers to run around in). Good band with new songs.
