A FROLIC IN THE WOODS… Of all the places I’ve seen William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream,’ the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum has to be the most idyllic… I sat in bliss as a butterfly joined the cast of this outdoor production, tracing parabolas of enchantment as though a new member of Titania’s fairy train… Puck and the other forest sprites swing, leap and gambol on the surrounding hills with joyful abandon.” — Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

IDYLLIC…everyone from tots to teens delights in this production… zips along, with whole portions of the show turned into songs set to original music… As the lovers run toward (and away from) each other in the woods near Athens, the Santa Monica Mountains become part of the story.” — Meghan Rose, Mommy Poppins
