New York, NY: OFFLINE Executive Producer Demetri Kofinas and Director Alexis Confer, are proud to announce their upcoming production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set to open June 9th, at the historic Theatre 80 St. Marks, in the heart of New York’s East Village.
Our modern take on this classic will transport audiences to the enchanted urban forest of NYC’s electrifying Lower East Side. Lines are blurred between fairy and starving artist, musician and noble lord, as we follow the interwoven storylines of four young lovers, a troupe of madcap actors and the fairies who toy with all their fates.
Following in the signature OFFLINE style, the cast features a talented mix of comedians, actors, improvisers and musicians, making for a unique rendition of one of Shakespeare’s most captivating comedies.
This production reinvents the Bard’s classic in an interactive, accessible and light way. It will appeal to the most avid Shakespeare fan, as well as to those experiencing a live play for the first time. We look forward to seeing you in the forest!
