A Midsummer Night's Dream
One of Shakespeare’s most sensually splendid and romantically convoluted plays—and certainly one of his most beloved—is a dreamlike flurry of lovers, fairies, and even an ass, all befuddled by the meddling of the impish Puck.
Puck closes the play with an apology: “If we shadows have offended, think but this, and all is mended: that you have but slumber'd here, while these visions did appear.” While Portland Center Stage’s production is far from offensive—only one unexpected pantomime even approaches a racy tone—the incongruous nature of its choices did befuddle, leaving our reviewer with the sense that it was Shakespeare set in the time of Disney.
