Memorable characters and theatrical magic abound in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved and witty comedies. Brought to vivid life in an innovative new production by Aquila Theatre — the company The New York Times raves “makes Shakespeare perfectly comprehensible” — this performance deals with love and its many facets: passion, lust, frustration, depression, confusion and marriage. Aquila’s signature beautiful movements, unique staging and bold physical style transport the audience to the heart of an enchanted forest, witnessing the injustice of the Athenian court and the political strife of the fairy kingdom.
