Although it's been a long time since William Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night's Dream between 1590 and 1596, the comedy is one of his most popular works and is continuously performed across the world. The plot, which is structured around the marriage of the Duke of Athens and the Queen of the Amazons, portrays the adventures and misadventures of young lovers, quirky actors and the mystical creatures who manipulate them with magic. This production has been directed and performed by various acclaimed artists such as Patrick Stewart and Sir Ben Kingsley. A Midsummer Night's Dream has also been produced countless times in New York, including the New York Shakespeare Festival at the Delacorte Theatre in Central Park, as well as a production by the Theater for a New Audience, produced by Joseph Papp at the Public Theater. Audiences seek A Midsummer Night's Dream tickets to see this timeless classic brought to life before their eyes.
