What a hoot! The first half of the play was entertaining, but after intermission things got kicked up a notch or two. I thought that I was in the midst of SNL meets Shakespeare! I have never enjoyed a Shakespearean play more, and I have seen...continued

The play was FANTASTIC. The most easily understood/accessible play Shakespeare wrote. The actors were all so incredibly talented! The rain didn't dampen our enthusiasm nor the actors ability to do the most challenging & physical stunts. I'll never...continued

I had no idea the gardens were there or let alone performances! The venue is lovely. Bonus that they employ vets!! The production was great and the cast was fablous. Puck, Hermia and Helena stood out for me. Bravo and Brava!

GO - now, next year, every chance you get to see this group! We don't see much Shakespeare any more - it needs to have a compelling element for us to attend. But this group consistently knocks it out of the park! In addition to very high level...continued

This was amazing! The Actors were so good. We had front row seats. Picnic in the garden before the show. It rained and everyone was pulling out bags (we luckily had a quilt from our picnic) to put on their heads, but NO ONE left it was so...continued

My teenage daughter and I had a wonderful time! The venue was lovely and the actors superb. Come early to secure a picnic table as there aren't many of them. The restroom facilities leave a lot to be desired. We would definitely go again!

One of the best productions of MND I've seen. Oberon seemed a little more villianous than I'm used to and his relationship with Titania a little different than I'd envision it. The acting was marvelous. The setting is really beautiful (though...continued

Fantastic experience! To be in an area that we have never seen, right in the middle of town. Such a beautiful outdoor theater they have created, and the acting is suburb. They made it very understandable and engaging to everyone. There is a...continued

A wonderful, wonderful experience. Fabulous cast and presentation! Picnicking before the show was great. Most important...check the location and the entries to the VA before you go. The traffic around the VA is HORRENDOUS, so you don't want to...continued

Fun, energetic, and highly entertaining performance by actors who weren't just reciting Shakespeare, but truly understood what they were saying.

great setting in the open-air surrounded by the VA's japanese garden. acting was great and the style used really helped bring out/elucidate the more complicated aspects of shakespeare's writing. starts at sunset and ends around 1030pm. definitely...continued

Side bleachers feature steps of mixed random heights. Serious fall waiting to happen. Bleacher seats are backless, so be prepared for a little discomfort. Otherwise, show was very enjoyable. Almost non-stop hilarity. Very listenable musical...continued

We loved the show. It was funny and honest and playful and creative. It held our interest the entire night. My husband and I haven't laughed so hard at the Rude Mechanicals scene in a very long time! We saw the first preview, so there was a bit of...continued

It gets quite cold - my only remark - otherwise fabulous. Since it's Shakespeare and probably Middel English - it's worth knowing the plot as it's hard to follow the words sometimes.
