A Midsummer Night's Dream

When: Aug. 6-30 2009

A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of the most-produced Shakespeare plays ever, an eternal rival of Romeo and Juliet. But you're in for a treat tonight, whether you're unacquainted with the story or you're a Shakespeare buff who has tired of the classic meter and subtle symbolism of a man being transformed into a donkey. At 4 p.m., Theatreworks tells the convoluted tale of young lovers at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater (3955 Cragwood Drive, theatreworkscs.org), where the fairy forest of the original is replaced, all dialogue intact, with the streets of the 1930s. The show runs through Aug. 30 and tickets are $16-$25 (free for UCCS students). — Avalon Manly
