Midsummer returns mid-Summer!
Synetic remounts their playful adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy with a trademark movement-based visual storytelling. This fantastical, darkly playful game of love, mistaken identity, and the supernatural was honored with nine Helen Hayes Award Nominations when it was first produced in 2010, taking home the award for Outstanding Ensemble and Outstanding Resident Play. Since then, the production has been remounted numerous times to great acclaim and toured Mexico for the 2014 Festival Internacional.
The production will run Wed – Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm, July 15 through August 9.
