This is 21st century theatre at its best. This wonderful and outstanding production of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is undoubtedly a creative success on every level. The show is spectacle at its purest, deftly combining different arts in profoundly original and previously unthinkable ways, and yet in so doing, it loses nothing of the vivacity of Shakespeare's text. This fun and lively adaptation sucks you in and I can only feel jealous of those lucky enough to have watched it in situ. Thanks to great improvisations by all cast members, a fantastic use of the theatrical space, well-choreographed scenes and a pretty killer soundtrack this hilarious, complex and greatly entertaining mise en scène is a joy to watch. Puck was absolutely fantastic, charismatic and fun to watch. Watching it in early July 2020 during the coronavirus pandemic is the real midsummer night's dream. Truly magical! One of NTL's greatest shows.
