Midsummer Night

Director/Choreographer: Janet Roston


What if the madness of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream took place at the Bonnaroo or Coachella Rock Festival? Songwriters Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda of GrooveLily join with Director/Choreographer Janet Roston to create a new take on Shakespeare’s well- loved comedy. It’s a 90 minute rollicking collision of rock, iambic pentameter and glow sticks where rock stars Titania and Oberon quarrel over an electric guitar, circus performer Puck creates havoc and roadie Bottom finally gets a chance to shine.  Performed at the Texas New Musical Festival and Tennessee Shakespeare Festival.
