Reuniting after the worldwide success of their ground-breaking co-production War Horse, England's Bristol Old Vic and South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company are back to create an exciting new take on Shakespeare's magical romantic comedy, focusing on transformation, survival and song. This re-imagining of A Midsummer's Night Dream finds its fantasy in mixing and even interchanging human and puppet characters, not to mention finding several ingenious forms for Puck, as the Bard's enchanted forest comes to life in a whole new way as part of the Kennedy Center's World Stages International Theater Festival.

The shuttle bus leaves the Foggy Bottom Metro station every 15 minutes so it's easy to get to by Public Transport. If you drive you can park in the garage at the Kennedy Center but it is expensive or you can park on the streets which might be hard to find and have to walk.

After reading the lukewarm reviews, I didn't know what to expext, but was pleasantly surprised. We really enjoyed this show. The singing was great across the board as was the music. The dancing, although technically good, appeared pretty dated, but this was supposed to be the 80's. The new songs were all catchy, which is unusual considering how many there were. The lead actress and actor did a very good job as did the supporting roles. It was a very fun afternoon.

Due to some adult situations, the show is recommended for ages 13 and older.
