“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.”
― William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
This production of Midsummer is going to set new records here in the 46th season of the Montford Park Players. Playing to packed (and utterly delighted) audiences from opening night on, the cast is knocking this perennial favorite out of the park.
The four Athenian lovers deliver, by all counts, a truly world-class performance. And the “Rude Mechanicals” will have you in stitches from first to last.
Do whatever you can to get out to the amphitheater one weekend in June. This show is simply not to be missed.
Bring a picnic and join the revels! It’s funny, it’s frivolous, and, as always with MPP productions, IT’S COMPLETELY FREE!
