Midsummer is Back

Theater for the New City, Crystal Field, Executive Artistic Director, in association with the cell,

A Twenty First Century Salon


, present The Hive's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S ^ Queer DREAM

This is not your grandmother’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but one for 21st century NYC—a modern re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic, which casts Hermia and Lysander as lesbian lovers with Demetrius and Helena as a gay couple. In the midst of the national gay marriage controversies, this production exposes contemporary America's sexual hang-ups and resistance to gay marriage. Concepts of what constitutes gender, sexual orientation and power will be explored and exploded! A wild bacchanal of every fetish imaginable--filled with delectable and dangerous fairies straight out of everyone’s fantasies and fears.

Wednesday - Sunday, 8pm
