FUSE Theatre of CT is proud to present a fully
re-imagined digital musical adventure: Shakespeare's
'A Midsummer Night's Dream'
with original score by Lydia Arachne of Semaphora!
Join us as we retreat into a technological fantasy world where humans and fairies cross paths and affect the world around them via a series of mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures.
Set in summer 2020, our highly innovative streamed production of 'Midsummer' retains faithfulness to Shakespeare's brilliant text, plot and characters, while flipping the script a bit by musicalizing famous passages and removing the story from its traditional forest setting into a different kind of forest: the inner workings of the digital world we have relied so heavily on for connection since the outset of the global pandemic.
Streaming premiere date:
Friday, May 21st, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. EST
Tickets go on sale soon via Onthestage.com!
