Tim Robbins directs this Actors' Gang workshop of Shakespeare's magical comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, adding original music and minimal costumes, props and scenery. This whimsical story of romance, mischief and magic follows four young lovers into the woods on a midsummer's night as they become the unwitting victims in a lover's quarrel between the king and queen of the faeries. When a group of local folk 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

Fun night. The terrific vocalist had the chops to pull off songs from Croatia, Georgia ... that's Gruzia not Atlanta, Persia, and a Bulgarian number I want to download (pay to download, not the sneaky way).
They went modern and North American on us for a while. Afterall, they are Canadian.
A poi & sufi dancer who was their guest artist, was pleasant to watch, but clearly not a professional dancer. Minus one star.
HuDost, a group from Montreal, gathers a rich eclectic blend of Rock, traditional Sufi and eastern European music with, “musical styles as diverse as the jellies in Marco Polo’s kitchen cupboard.” HuDost has toured throughout the US, Europe, and Canada including extensive tours on the east coast with popular venues such as: Alex Grey’s CoSM in NYC, the Salvador Dali Museum, the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts and many others.
Their most recent album “Trapeze” was released earlier this year and produced by Grammy Award winner Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Bob Dylan, Kaki King).
About the Ticket Supplier: Actors' Gang
The Actors’ Gang is one of Los Angeles’ most enduring theatre ensembles. Founded in 1981 by a group of renegade theatre artists, the Gang’s mission is to create bold, original works for the stage and daring reinterpretations of the classics. Our work is raw, immediate, socially minded, and crafted with the highest artistic standards.
Over the course of our first 20 years we have produced 68 plays and won over 100 awards, winning acclaim for our interpretations of Shakespeare, Bruchner, Brecht, Moliere, Aeschylus, Ibsen and Chekhov, while developing in workshop new plays that address the world today through a prism of satire, popular culture and raucous stagecraft.
Through co-productions, The Actors’ Gang presented the West Coast Premiere of Eric Bogosian’s “Suburbia” with the Namaste Theatre Company, Roger Guenver Smith’s “A Huey P. Newton Story,” Danny Hoch’s “Jails, Hospitals, Hip Hop” with Center Theatre Group, and “Medea/Macbeth/Cinderella” with The Cornerstone Theatre Company. The Actors’ Gang has toured with productions as the US representative at the Edinburgh Festival and to New York’s Public Theatre with “Carnage, A Comedy”; with “The Imaginary Invalid” to the Rushmore Festival in New York, and in 2001 saw “Bat Boy, A Musical,” developed at the Actors’ Gang, won the Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics award for best new musical Off-Broadway in New York.
