A Summer of Shakespeare in Hartford
Both The Tempest and A Midsummer Night's Dream share a common bond in that they are Shakespearian comedies that could have easily been tragedies of Romeo and Juliet proportions without the interference of some meddling supernatural characters. Both are, arguably, also ideally suited to summertime, when warm weather and sunshine tempt us to sleep outdoors and allow the faeries to interfere in our love lives, or perhaps to journey to exotic lands that may house magicians. And Hartford is graced by stellar and unique productions of both plays this year.
