Julie Taymor’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

Directed by Oscar-nominated and Tony Award winning director Julie Taymor (FRIDA and THE LION KING), this reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM is what one critic calls “a vibrant, visually stunning journey into William Shakespeare’s beloved fairy-land.” Centered around the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus and Hippolyta, the story follows the adventures of four young lovers and six amateur actors, known as mechanicals, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies that inhabit the forest. Taymor returns to her roots, utilizing the theatrical techniques that first gained her fame: puppetry, shadow figures, mime, projections, dance, music, and Cirque-style aerial tricks in this magical production, starring Kathryn Hunter (HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHEONIX) as Puck, Zach Appelman (KILL YOUR DARLINGS) as Demetrius, and William Youmans (BIRDMAN) as Starveling.
