A Midsummer Night's Dream

Michael Hoffman successfully produces and directs this magical adaptation of William Shakespeare's comedy taking place in 19th century Italy. It's about two mythical creatures casting a "love spell" over two individuals that will make them fall madly in love with the first person they see. However, problems arise when they see the wrong person. It's both a creative and funny and it still remains faithful to Shakespeare's original intent. A wonderful set makes "A Midsummer Night's Dream" a treat just to look at! The cast of Kevin Kline, Rupert Everett, Michelle Pfeiffer and Calista Flockhart (who gives a strikingly effective performance as a kooky maiden) are superb!
