RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

Midsummer Nights transfers Shakespeare’s classic comedy from ancient Athens to the California coast and into the great “Beach Blanket” movies of the 1960’s.  Over the course of a magical evening, pranksters, eccentrics and fools find love and folly while delivering “Grease”-style parodies of '60’s pop songs.  In the seaside town of Laguna Beach, Hermia and Lysander find new inspiration as a “Frankie and Annette” pair of star-crossed lovers. Demetrius is a science nerd. Helena is a biker chick. Shakespeare’s rustics are now a local community theater group.  Shakespeare’s fairy king and queen are re-imagined as discontented beatniks.  Puck is a mischievous beach boy and Cobweb, Blossom and Moth provide backup vocals. Midsummer Nights is an enchanted evening of spirited song and dance and an excellent choice for community or local regional theater productions.
