Public Theater Mobile Unit: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Williamsbridge Oval, 3225 Reservoir Oval East – Bronx, 7pm – 8:30pm
This fall, a classic New York City block party becomes the enchanted setting where fairies work their mischief in Shakespeare’s beloved play A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Acclaimed director Jenny Koons takes you to the royal wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta, where a celebratory play is being rehearsed. But the real drama is unfolding in the concrete jungle of fairy King Oberon. There, four young New Yorkers discover the course of true love runs anything but smooth, as supernatural sprites and the lovable Puck conspire to reveal what fools we mortals be, and draw us all into the collective dream of romance and merriment. RSVP to hold your spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Free.
