Almost every production with the Intrepid Shakespeare Company is first rate. It suffers only by being a tiny bit north of the average San Diego theatre-goers' range.

Even if you know nothing about the Bard, you'll enjoy this play. The music fits well with story and will have you singing in your seat. Let's hope for an encore in 2014. Better yet...hamlet the musical. Lol

Fun, inventive, totally cool,and a great way to see Shakespeare. My daughter said she doesn't think that she'll ever again be able see A Midsummer Night's Dream without music. And I might agree.

The acting was good and the set was interesting but I found the gaps in the storyline, due to inserting the songs, made for confusion in tracking the action which doesn't occur when simply viewing this play as it exists. Theater cooled down...continued

The Goldstar portion was fine: the price was good and the parking easy and free. I left at the intermission. The show was sophomoric and the songs were underwhelming. The director had most of the cast running around so much it was like a track...continued

Very entertaining.
Loved the vocals--except for the "queen devil" (Hippolyta/Titania?), her voices was scratchy at times.
Thought the stage work was wonderful--could have used the stage for the second half instead of in front of the curtain...continued

I am not a fan of Shakespeare, but this play was cleverly melded with snippits of "oldies" song that were appropriate and very funny. All the actors were very talented. Helena was especially interesting. I would recommend it to...continued

Great rendition of a classic with songs from the 50's, 60's, and 70's to make it more entertaining, more fun.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!! Very creative! Shakespeare would have loved this very lively and energetic interpretation of his clever, funny comedy - set to well selected mid-20th century pop songs, beautifully performed and perfectly cast with great...continued

The actors were great- as actors and as singers. Very funny. Loved the staging too. First Shakespeare I have ever seen so I read the story first which helps since it is spoken in Old English. For me, it was hard to understand what the actors...continued
