A Midsummer Night's Dream

For Mother's Day, Stephanie and I treated my mom to a matinée performance by the Great Lakes Theater Festival of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream set in the 1960s. Most of the cast was also in Bat Boy (click for photos [photoblog.com]), including my mom's business partner's son, Bat Boy, er, I mean, Mitch McCarrell. This time Mitch had a much smaller role as Starveling/Moonshine and Cobweb.

This was my first time seeing any Shakespeare play and I thought it was excellent.

“An exhilarating night of midsummer madness, this magical comedy brims with mistaken identity, mismatched lovers and mischief-making fairies. Boldly inspired by the marvelously mod influences of a rock ??n?? roll infused 1960s London, this production of Shakespeare??s comic masterpiece ensnares two pairs of lovers and a rustic troupe of would-be actors in a magical-mystery tour de force. A Midsummer Night??s Dream is a joyful celebration of love lost, transformed and restored that casts a powerfully pleasing spell on audiences of all ages.”
