A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM is unique among Shakespeare’s comedies. Combining elements of farce and the romantic comedies of his later years, Shakespeare created a wildly magical and mercurial play, possibly his first true masterpiece. The setting is Athens, but we have imagined an Athens embraced by the magic and mirth of New Orleans’ Mardi Gras. Perhaps familiar, perhaps not. Who can say what will become of the lovers as they travel through the forest, caught within the dark spell of midnight, madness and love?
Hollywood Forever Cemetery and Tall Blonde Productions are proud to present their second “Shakespeare in the Cemetery” event, William Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, directed by Chrisanne Blankenship . New York may have “Shakespeare in the Park” but Los Angelenos will now have a new way to experience the Bard’s work as the Hollywood Forever Cemetery will be presenting two of Shakespeare’s classics in their park every summer. Audiences are invited to arrive early, bring a picnic dinner to enjoy, a blanket to sit on and friends with which to share an inspiring evening. Dinner and a play have never been quite like this!
