Midsummer Night’s Dream as You Have Never Dreamed Before…

Wow. When I heard the National Theatre of Londonwas showing Midsummer Night’s Dream, after viewing a slew of amazing performances the last few weeks – I started viewing a few nights ago, was AMAZING at how the changes made to this traditional production came into its own with choreography, dance, genders and race, and so much more.

 

HURRY ! You ONLY have until this time to see this version for FREE!

The Bridge Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is streaming from 7pm UK time on Thursday 25 June, until 7pm UK time on Thursday 2 July 2020.

Magical, yes. Hard to believe and almost a dream yes. Although I took two days to view to take this production in, the presentation as well as the presence of such talent and the aspects of mystical elements – there is SO MUCH HERE that cannot be put into words and this cast made a complete visual, interlayered tale, frame within frame tale.

BETTER YET, JUST recently, after viewing this you should see the reunion of the cast that JUST occurred HERE!

Gwendoline Christie (GAME OF THRONES!) was AMAZING and a huge reason to see this and then yet EVERYONE – EVERYONE was HUGE in this!
