This enchanting comic tale is reimagined as a magical game of romance by the always innovative Onomatopoeia Theatre Company. The playful production posits that as revenge for performing a "certain Scottish play" last season, Shakespeare's faeries have returned to put a spell on a quartet of the troupe's mortal actors, forcing them to recreate famous roles from A Midsummer Night's Dream. The timeless romance is then lovingly deconstructed, and what results is a delightfully chaotic evening of laughter, music and dance. Learn More

I guess its proof of progress that it's hard to appreciate a comedy about slavery. Really need to be hit over the head with the subject, like the movie, 12 Years A Slave, or the play, Machinal. Might as well have a play about forest nymphs and fairies. At least they are things lots of people are still familiar with today.

The gene frankel theater was a very small theater. Viewing the performance was difficult from many seats. The acting was spirited at times but lacked any sort of professionalism. The actors looked like they were having fun though.
