A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
CRITICS LOVE A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM!
"It's a vibrant and intimate rendering... full of magic and comedy enough to warm even the most iced-over hearts ... a charming and spellbinding experience." nowtoronto.com
"This is a production oozing with sex. The beauty of the production, its spareness and clarity thanks to director Richard Sheridan Willis and his cast, make it worthy and worth your time." slotkinletter.com
"The second act is side splittingly funny, double up in your chair laughing funny." mooneyontheatre.com
"What they achieve is a rollicking, laugh-out-loud funny version of the play that exploits the sly humour in Shakespeare's spoof of the acting world and the mix of magic, make-believe and nonsense that is A Midsummer Night's Dream." susanwalkerartsblog.com
"The Chekhov Collective's Midsummer Night's Dream is a delightfully entertaining escape from the brutal winter weather into a different kind of natural disorder, and while fairly brief (running time is 2 hours), is rarely tedious." myentertainment world.ca.
"It was enchanting from start to finish and had some beautiful theatre magic moments." shakespearestudying.wordpress.com
"Without exception, the ensemble handles the language with expert clarity and skilful physical rambunctiousness.... Director Richard Sheridan Willis has used his performers and setting with a great sense of playful abandon." http://batemanreviews.blogspot.ca
On a midsummer's night, young lovers and workmen plunge into a world where spirits abound. Vows melt, bodies transform, seasons alter, the moon stills... it's a world turned upside down and nothing is what it seems.
