“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is one of William Shakespeare’s most beloved and whimsical comedies, awash in magic and classical Greek inspiration. Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong when a central character is suddenly bestowed with a jackass’ head, now can you? This condensed version has been reworked for both children and adults.
