The Seattle Shakespeare Company delivers bard-penned dramatics to eager theatergoers, delighting patrons with fresh takes on Shakespeare's classic plays. Following several plot threads, including the supernaturally altered infatuations of two young couples and the antics of a clownish troupe of actors, A Midsummer Night's Dream deftly mixes fantasy and sidesplitting comedy into a mélange that tickles funny bones and ousts any were-hyenas sitting in the audience. Fairies, love spells, and mistaken identities keep plots rolling merrily along before all is resolved in jubilant fashion. Shows take place at the Intiman Playhouse, with seating that puts theatergoers close enough to see every costume lace ruffle and anachronistically flawless smile.
