Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) will end its 2014-2015 season with the Shakespeare classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre through May 3.
A comedy of mistaken identity and love, A Midsummer Night’s Dream provides a magical exploration of love, lust, and marriage. With fairies, magic spells, and people transforming into animals, Shakespeare takes us through the chaotic twists and turns only to illustrate just how otherworldly love can be. The production is directed by Dale AJ Rose, Associate Artistic Director at CRT and the Director of Performance Studies at UConn.
The show runs at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre. Weeknight evening performances start at 7:30; weekend evening performances start at 8. Matinee performances start at 2 pm. Tickets are $7 $30: www.crt.uconn.edu; 860-486-2113. The box office is now housed in the Nafe Katter Theatre, 820 Bolton Road, open Monday-Friday, noon to 5 pm and one hour prior to show time at the theater where the performance is taking place.
