(A play with music)
Based on William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Adapted by Cherie Corinne Rice
In New York City’s near future, the climate has changed. Midsummer feels more like “angry winter” and it’s all because the fairy-drag king Oberon fights with his true love, the fairy-drag queen Titania. Meanwhile, four young New Yorkers flee to Central Park at midnight to escape their parents’ antiquated lifestyle demands. The lovers are unknowingly caught in the cross hairs of a hedonistic disc jockey named Puck who remixes each couple with love potions and popular music. With a new moon approaching and a royal wedding to boot, the fairy underworld lovers must settle their feud, to set the seasons back in motion and restore love in the city, before it is too late.
