Spells are cast, lovers are fooled and revelry flourishes as worlds collide in Shakespeare’s imaginative comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, presented by Lilly at the IRT, April 10-May 12. A Midsummer Night’s Dream blurs the line between magic and reality, leading to a night so fantastical you have to dream it to believe it. Love charms and magical encounters all run amok in Shakespeare’s classic comedy set in an Athenian forest inhabited by sprites, fairies and a group of amorous couples who change partners at the drop of a spell. This exuberant tale of young lovers in the woods for a night of mischief is sure to please anyone who remembers the magic of true romance.
