A Midsummer Night's Dream:

The Rewired Musical

In "A Midsummer Night’s Dream: The Rewired Musical," the characters in Shakespeare's beloved comedy find themselves in the scariest place imaginable: the summer of 2020! A global pandemic has altered the way humans interact and social distancing forces young lovers to maintain their connection via high-tech devices. Remaining faithful to Shakespeare’s timeless text, this film jumps the setting over 400 years and reminds us how the digital world can simultaneously pull us apart and bring us together.
