A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM REVIEWS

Cure the mid-winter doldrums with a
mid-summer night’s fantasy!

From Salt Lake City Weekly…

“…A Midsummer Night’s Dream, currently playing at Pioneer Theatre Company, is the perfect antidote to the conspicuous cardboard hearts still hanging over the seasonal aisle at your local grocery store!” (Read more…)

“Lucky for us, it’s all done masterfully. PTC gets all of the elements right, keeping this well-known piece simultaneously fresh and familiar…With no weak links, PTC’s Midsummer Night’s Dream is as much fun as a good, old-fashioned moonlight romp in the woods. Well, maybe not quite—but it’s as close as we’re going to get until the weather warms up!”

From The Deseret Morning News…

” The Pioneer Theatre Company production of “Midsummer Night’s Dream” is pretty and fanciful and bold.” (Read more…)

“In costuming and in casting, the [PTC] production highlights the similarities between the men and the differences between the women. It gets you thinking about why we choose the people we choose…In short, if you think you’ve seen “Midsummer Night’s Dream” enough times, well you haven’t.”
From Salt Lake Magazine…

“Pioneer Theatre Company’s 2008 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, excellently directed by Paul Barnes, is a satisfying rendition of this crowd-pleasing standby.” (Read more…)

“The stage direction and choreography of the whole play were stunning—literally. With a wave of their hands, the fairies who populate the stage arrested the movement of the beings—

mortal and otherwise—around them. The actors’ whiz-crack timing was so convincing, it almost seemed like spells were truly shooting around the stage…Their version includes a lot of physical comedy and mimed gags, which not only add to the levity of this already fluffy play, they also aid comprehension for patrons less familiar with the genre—perfect for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.”
