Reviews of A Midsummer Night's Dream

Audience Raves

"Such a talented cast, using so many skills — from physical comedy to interpretive dance to (obviously) Shakespearian verse with contemporary delivery. We were so impressed!"

"The play's the thing! In addition, great ushers, excellent cocktail, great set, good acting, good choreography, creative costumes. Loved the fact that the costumes defined the characters' gender rather than the physical attributes of the actors."

"I loved the inclusivity of casting as well. Each actor seemed perfectly suited for their role."

"The 4 lovers were great- brought new life to characters we’ve seen before, and clearly had built a group connection."

"The best “play within a play” section of MND I’ve seen."

Critic Reviews

"Underneath the spellbinding forest locale – designed by Peter Ksander – four lovers, a bumbling band of theater makers, and a troupe of fiendish fairies bring true magic to life." Renegade PNW

"The last time I laughed this hard at a live performance was a year ago at the improvisational show Freestyle Love Supreme." PDX Parent

"Portland Center Stage's fresh take on Shakespeare's comedy is a nimble, playful, genderfluid, and not at all didactic delight." Oregon ArtsWatch

"It’s the perfect play to send patrons off into summer since the plot focuses on escaping the oppressions of the city by romping freely through an enchanted forest." —WilliametteWeek

In The News

“Sometimes, you do feel like you have to hide an aspect of yourself to acclimate and to assimilate. It feels really nice to be able to just walk in the building and know that wherever I’m at, there will be space held for me.” —Treasure Lunan in an interview with Oregon ArtsWatch
