It’s 1934, and the famous Max Reinhardt is filming Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. When two of the bard’s most famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, appear by magic on the Warner Brothers Hollywood set, the result is a hilarious combination of potent flowers, blonde bombshells, movie moguls and arrogant “asses” embroiled in multiple love triangles. Winner of the Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play in 2004, Ken Ludwig’s take on Shakespeare’s well-known comedy is a fun-filled romp that sparkles with wit and charm.
