by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
directed by TONY SIMOTES
Magic and whimsy meet down in the Bayou where A Midsummer Night’s Dream comes to life and the Jazz Era in America explodes! Oberon, Titania and the ever-mischievous sprite Puck frolic among the mangroves and Spanish moss in this enchanted and unforgettable treatment of Shakespeare’s classic, bawdy comedy.
Reviews are in!
“For a theatre company doing it right — absolutely right — look no further than Shakespeare & Company in Lenox and their current production of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ …one of the most inspiring productions I’ve seen in a very long time.”
“This is a production that is fun, accessible and would make a wonderful introduction to younger audiences into the magical world of William Shakespeare.”
“Tony Simotes, who played Puck in the inaugural production 36 years ago, directs, and he’s at his best…”
—Albany Times Union
“Takes full advantage of the energy and spirit of the Jazz Age New Orleans setting in which Simotes has placed his production.”
