    In this rollicking adaptation of Shakespeare's play, teens, fairies, workers and royalty collide in a forest on a summer night, and are bedazzled by a prankster. The fairy queen falls in love with an ass, the teens fall in and out (and in) love with each other, well-meaning goofs stumble into their 15 minutes of fame and fairies weave magic to bring it all to a happy end. Three streetwise storytellers pull the audience at breakneck speed toward the moon-drenched conclusion. Learn More
