Here are any comments that I'm seeing for A Midsummer Night's Dream for The Shakespeare Tavern in Atlanta, Georgia.
"Let's start with the cast. For once, the four lovers are the comic equals of the "Rude Mechanicals" here. Jacob York's Demetrius towers over Matt Felten's Lysander, and a lot of comic mileage is made of that. Director Andrew Houchins has staged the forest scene with so much wit and slapstick and originality, that I (and, I daresay, everyone else in Friday's crowd) was actually breathless with uncontrolled laughter. These four performers are so dynamic, so compelling, that they could have carried the show themselves, without the "low-brow" Mechanicals."
