This production will be East Coast première of the stunning new, award winning, original adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Matthew Kellen Burgos and Sam R. Ross, co-Artistic Directors of Vanguard Repertory Company (an LA based equity company). Reviews of this adaptation are available here: http://www.stagescenela.com/2011/07/a-midsummer-nights-dream/ and here: http://www.lasplash.com/publish/Los_Angeles_Performances_116/a-midsummer-nights-dream-theatre-review.php .
This production will be directed by Neil Colvin, former Chairman of the Board for Shakespeare and Company, and producer of several Tony Award nominated shows.
It will be a free production held at the Black Box Theater located at 377 North Main Street. Tickets can be reserved by calling MMAS or visiting our website.
This adaptation has a running time of 90 minutes, with no intermission. It is set in the 1950s.
The adaptation emphasizes accessible Shakespeare! NOTE: We were originally hoping to hold this production outdoor at Foulton's Pond on Rumford Ave, but production aspects have changed that. So now you can enjoy a break from the summer heat and enjoy this show at the air-conditioned Black Box Theater.
Sunday matinee performences will be held on Sunday August 5, and Sunday August 12. Those performances will be at 2 PM.
