Two years ago we saw Much Ado About Nothing here and were encouraged to come back this year to see Midsummer Night's Dream. Apparently the productions vary from fairly traditional to completely off the wall. Last time we were impressed by the way lightening and thunder heightened the meaning of the play. This performance was the latter. Wacky from beginning to end and I was struggling to find Shakespeare midst the music of Paul Simon and faux Beatlemania. Performances played to the far reaches of the outdoor ampi-theater, extremely broad with wild antics. Hermia won a long and lengthy applause for a cartwheeling gymnastic exhibition of emotion. Bottom couldn't be stopped from insisting on audience reactions a al Stephen Colbert. The food is good, the ambiance fantastic and, I guess, the chance of what you get in performance is part of the fun. Puck was excellent and all of the actors were accomplished and good but the production was way way way too long for such silliness.
