(US, 2014) Director: Julie Taymor. Cast: Tina Benko, Max Casella, David Harewood, Kathryn Hunter.

For an enchanted afternoon of theater on the big screen, you can do no better than Julie Taymor’s darkly poetic version of Shakespeare’s most magical drama! The highly-acclaimed inaugural production was filmed at the Theatre for a New Audience at Polonsky Shakespeare Center in downtown Brooklyn NY. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a visual masterwork from the creator of The Lion King (on Broadway), and films including Frida and The Tempest. You will lose yourself in the tale of human lovers, faerie folk and gods and goddesses at play in an Athenian wood – led by a mesmerizing, androgynous Puck played by British stage sensation Kathryn Hunter.

“…when the moments are this beautiful, they take root in your mind and assume lives of their own. Don’t be surprised when they start showing up in your own dreams.” – Ben Brantley, New York Times.
