This unique adaptation of Shakespeare's whimsical story of romance, mischief and magic is set in the 1940s and performed promenade-style, where you follow the action and actors around the space. In this play, one of Shakespeare's most popular, four young lovers venture into the woods on a midsummer's night and become the unwitting victims in a lover's quarrel between the king and queen of fairies. When a group of local rustics rehearsing a play in the forest also gets caught up in the madness, the comical snarl of spells seems impossible to sort out. But with fairies and sprites all around, it just takes a little more magic and, as Puck puts it, "all is mended." Learn More

I had already rated and reviewed this event. I think the fact that this is my second time going to see it speaks volumes. The show continues to be consistently excellent. Enjoyed it just as much the second time around as I did the first.
Written by David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Zachary Davis
A twisted and kooky comedy of the best kind: one with heart. Wonder of the World is a meditation on relationships in all their many forms, Lindsay-Abaire takes one woman’s life crisis, throws her and a cast of one-of-kind characters into a barrel and has them ride on the waterfall’s edge of insanity and self discovery.
