A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Nightingale Theatre
Directed by Becky Clem
Produced by Chip Arnold

“Lovers, lunatics and poets provided a merry evening for theatre-goers in Nightingale Theatre’s staging of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare’s comedy opened last night in Johnson Theatre under the pixied direction by Becky Clem that whoops the Bard’s lines into high-spirited, rowdy farce as cheerfully uninhibited as commedia dell’arte.”
