Theatricum Botanicum brings back its signature production, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, an audience favorite with a set design unrivaled by any other theatre—because it’s the real thing. The most magical outdoor setting in Los Angeles is once again transformed into an enchanted forest inhabited by lovers both fairy and human.
Shakespeare conjures a world of wonder and romance where comical misunderstandings and the pain of unrequited love are resolved, and all is reconciled through midsummer night revelries and the enduring power of nature. Mediterranean buffet “Dream Dinners,” with a costumed cast of fairies in attendance, take place every Thursday in August at 6:30 pm in the theatre’s adjacent gardens, followed by an 8 pm performance. (Separate admission or combo packages available). June 3 – September 30; The Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum, 1419 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., Topanga, CA, 90290; $20-$33; 310-455-3723; www.theatricum.com.
