The Arc Theatre returns to Shakespeare on the Ridge for its 10th anniversary with the show that started it all: “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Starry-eyed young lovers and a couple of ambitious actors escape the rigid world of Athens and enter into a magical woods inhabited by spectacular faeries who’s lust for mischief is fueled by their own torrid romance. Perfectly suited to Shakespeare on the Ridge’s outdoor stage at twilight, this re-imagined adaptation of Shakespeare’s most famous comedy is Arc at its best.
