A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
You don’t have to fall victim to Puck’s intoxicating potion to fall deeply in love with this rendition of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Director Julie Taymor’s phantasmagorical and widely celebrated stage performance is stunningly brought to screen with nimble and immersive cinematography, creating an enviable hybrid that surpasses the boundaries of both formats. With a cast of bickering fairy royalty, mischievous sprites, passionate young lovers, determined amateur actors and, of course, a man with the head of an ass (er, donkey)—Shakespeare’s hilarious and imaginative comedy takes audiences into a world beyond imagining, and Taymor’s adaptation perfectly captures its comic misunderstandings, dizzy romance and sparkling wordplay. Irresistibly energetic and filled with feats of visual imagination, A Midsummer Night’s Dream will make you laugh, gasp and give a standing ovation.
