Great production and good intro to Shakespeare for my 11 year old son. He laughed a lot! Only downside to the night was that my car was broken into. We parked in a small-ish underground lot between NW 10th and 11th. I did leave a work bag on the front passenger side floor, so that was my own fault. Thankfully nothing valuable taken but a reminder to put everything in the trunk.
As the royals Theseus and Hippolyta prepare to marry, four young lovers from their Athenian kingdom flee to the forest in the wake of parental disapproval. But in the woodland, these lovers’ lives are complicated upon crossing paths with feuding faerie royalty. As Oberon and Titania bicker over a changeling child, the mischievous Puck and his sprightly accomplices use herbal spells to hilariously complicate the love-mad quartet’s forest idyll.
When a group of local rustics rehearsing a play for the Athens wedding also seek the quiet of the forest, the spells and confusions wrought seem unlikely to ever sort themselves out. But this is William Shakespeare at his most magical and most imaginative, and with a little enchantment, as Puck says “all is mended.”
*_Recommended for ages 10 and up. _
