A Midsummer Night's Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Charles McMahon
March 10 - April 17, 2011  extended!

"The city's most consistent producer of the Bard's work" (Philadelphia Weekly) presents Shakespeare's most exuberant comedy, featuring 11 of Philadelphia's most beloved comedic actors! Young lovers Hermia and Lysander, kept apart by strict Athenian law, escape to the woods where tyrannical parents can't find them but mischief can. Elsewhere among the trees, the fairy king and queen are having a marital spat with disastrous consequences for one Nick Bottom. Rediscover your favorite characters in a lively production that puts you in the middle of all the midsummer romance and magic.

"Lantern Theater [Company] continues its success with Shakespeare by giving us a funny, lusty, rowdy, charming production of A Midsummer Night's Dream." –Philadelphia Inquirer [More]

"I can't think of a better antidote for the spring fever itch than A Midsummer Night's Dream. Despite its small stage (or maybe because of it), Lantern Theater Company is noted for excellent presentations of Shakespeare. This production is no exception." –Broad Street Review [More]

"The ensemble is strong and the show is fantastic." –CurtainUp [More]

"There are plenty of big rewards in Charles McMahon's high-octane production." –Philadelphia City Paper

"Head over to the Lantern Theater Company for the laugh of your life!" –Philly Broadcaster
