In a setting that even Shakespeare himself couldn’t have imagined, the Alliance Theatre will produce a whimsical, outdoor production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. In Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, two couples deal with love and all its complications – confusion, jealousy, and passion. Further hindering the couples on their way to happily ever after are a lively band of characters and challenging events, including a band of actors, wood sprites and elves, a botched love potion, and the wedding of a king! Directed by David Catlin, founding ensemble member of Lookingglass Theatre Company in Chicago.
"We are thrilled to have the Alliance Theatre present A Midsummer Night's Dream in the new Skyline Garden for their next season. I can't imagine a more magical and beautiful setting for one of Shakespeare's most creative and inspired works. The Alliance Theatre will bring it to life in our Garden with the Atlanta skyline shimmering in the background." —Mary Pat Matheson; President and CEO, Atlanta Botanical Garden
