Mile Square Theatre's Outdoor Production Of A Midsummer Night's Dream

(HOBOKEN, NJ) -- Set in the 1950’s, in the rough and tumble world of the Hoboken waterfront, Mile Square Theatre's revival of its critically acclaimed 2007 production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is on stage now through August 9. Shakespeare’s comedy of teen love, magical fairies, and clownish mechanicals. MST Artistic Director Chris O`Connor (Art, Scapin,) will direct the project, which features MST Associate Artistic Director Matthew Lawler (House of Cards, God’s Pocket with Philip Seymour Hoffman) as Bottom. Also joining the cast is Dillon Heape (American Conservatory Theatre) as Oberon, Aaliyah Habeeb (Mixed Blood Theatre) as Titania, and Lou Carbonneau (Grey’s Anatomy, Law and Order) as Peter Quince.

“We are thrilled to bring this production back this year, which marks Frank Sinatra’s 100 birthday,” says director Chris O’Connor. “The show is set during Sinatra’s heyday and is underscored with his music. The world of Theseus is the Rat Pack and the young lovers are bobby soxers. We are performing the show on the very site where On the Waterfront was filmed, so we’ve made the mechanicals longshoremen. The setting of the production puts a new spin on Shakespeare’s comedy and at the same time embraces our local history. Audiences will have a great time watching the show, feeling a summer breeze come off the Hudson River, and watching the moon rise over the Manhattan skyline. It’s really a magical setting!”

Performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be: July 22, 25, 26, 27, 28, August 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, and 9 at Frank Sinatra Park in Hoboken, NJ.  Performances begin at 8PM.  Admission is free.
