Don’t just take our word for it: Praise for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

It’s closing week (sniff, sniff) of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and audience and press praise continues to come in!


If you haven’t bought tickets yet, check out these comments, then book your seats today before we close this Sunday, June 4!


Audience feedback:

“This is the most beautiful production I have ever seen of this play.”

A man stood for a full minute looking at me in wonder and said “This was UNFORGETTABLE. Thank you.”

“I’ve never laughed so hard.”

“Does he (Bottom) do that every night? Hilarious!”

“The actors were all amazing. I really enjoyed the bared down scenery with more over-the-top acting.”

“Really loved the set design, actors energy was great, that Bottom was a hoot.”


Praise from the press:

  • “Mortals would be foolish to miss this version of Shakespeare’s Dream.” — The Arts Fuse
  • “The company has come up with something fresh and so perfect that you have to wonder it hasn’t been done before — or, it if has, that if hasn’t been done a lot.” — EDGE Boston
  • “This Midsummer is one of the funniest and most charming Shakespearean productions I’ve seen.” — Talkin’ Broadway
  • “A delightfully inventive and entertaining take on the popular Shakespearean comedy. … When, as in the current case, the production is particularly lively, fun, and inventively staged, its newness and vivacity shine right through its familiarity.” — Boston Arts Diary
  • “This is a Midsummer Night’s Dream Worth Seeing Multiple Midsummer Nights” —  The Theater Mirror
  • “The most entrancing aspect of this show is how pretty it is.” — The New England Theatre Geek
  • “Remarkable things : the original music and sound design of David Reiffel, and the performance of Steven Barkhimer, who stops the show in the second act, when he reaches a new stratosphere of comedic genius during the 11th-hour play-within-a-play.” —TheaterMania
