Why See A Midsummer Night's Dream?
What fools these mortals be
In joyous celebration of 20 years of Chicago Shakespeare on Navy Pier, Joe Dowling revisits his much-acclaimed production of the Bard's wondrous supernatural rom-com for a new era. A delightful and dizzying tale that still enraptures audiences after 400 years, prepare to enter a realm where a tiff between fairy royalty gets very, very out of hand, affecting supernatural folk and mortals alike. Expect warm wit, silliness, romance and theatrical magic from this revival, set to a jazz, blues and do wop inspired score!
What is the story?
A Midsummer Night's Dream focuses on three parallel stories while dealing with the universal theme of love and its complications. It follows the trials of two couples as they camp in a magical forest, the world of the fairy King and Queen who inhabit said forest and a group of tradesmen attempting to stage a production of 'Pyramus and Thisby' for the wedding of the Duke of Athens. In true Shakespearean comedy-style, these stories don't stay separate for long and worlds collide in a spectacularly hilarious fashion. Love, action, magic and comedy mix to create a truly magical spell.
