Magic Time is the perfect play for a young ensemble of actors who can handle both contemporary comedy and Shakespeare.  Inspired by the early days of the Steppenwolf Theatre, Magic Time shows a troupe of actors in a makeshift dressing room in the basement of a church.  Fueled by dedication and youthful enthusiasm, the backstage relationships cleverly mirror the onstage ones as they prepare for a performance of Hamlet.

Magic Time premiered at The Actors and Directors Theatre in New York City on December 7, 1981.
