01-02-2018 12:00:00 25-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York A Midsummer Night's Dream | 3:00 PM & 7:30 PM "Frog & Peach is a jewel of Off-Broadway. You can't find a more exhilarating evening than to join this troupe for a romp in the woods!" – Ronald Gross, NYTB Guide The renowned Frog & Peach Theatre Company follows up their record breaking Sheen Center debut of 2017's Macbeth with A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's rollicking romp of romance, wizardry, and show biz. A Midsummer Night's Dream transports audiences to the palaces of Athens, and the dark, bewitching forests surrounding the kingdom, where the fairy King Oberon (Erick Gonzalez, star of 2017's hit Macbeth) and his Queen Titania (Amy Frances Quint) are waging a deliciously romantic war. With help from the devilish Puck (Marcus Watson) Oberon casts a spell over his estranged lover, as well as the lovers Hermia (Alyssa Diamond), Helena (Bess Miller), Lysander (Edan Jacob Levy) and Demetrius (Kyle Primack). Meanwhile, as the Mechanicals rehearse their tragically hilarious Pyramus & Thisby, Puck cannot resist transforming the hapless Bottom (Kevin Hauver) into a donkey. Will witchcraft spell disaster, or save the day? With themes of sexual politics, climate change, and celebrity, A Midsummer Night's Dream is a startlingly modern comedy. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=268676 Sheen Center for Thought & Culture Sheen Center for Thought & Culture
