Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun
A Midsummer Night's Dream

From the Playbill – Director’s Notes:

Titania and OberonWhen our season ended in September of 1994, attendance was at an all-time high and many folks who caught ‘the buzz’ were unable to attend a performance before we had to shut down for the fall….Consequently, we received scores of requests to remount the show and, happily, that is what you are about to see tonight. There are some necessary changes in sets and actors (however, Len Pettigrew’s very solid Wall fittingly remains and ‘vid Buttaro, our original Lysander returns as Oberon, King of the faeries), and you will also find some new insights and delights. We hope you will enjoy sharing it with us as much as we have enjoyed bringing the dream back to life in this magical glen under the summer stars.”

What the Critics Said:

Titania and Bottom



“As a heady entertainment on a warm night in the sylvan Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is indeed the stuff that dreams are made of, thanks to a sparkling production by the Marin Shakespeare Company…. well-executed tour de force….The recasting of New Pickle Circus’ Diane Wasnak and Jeff Raz as Puck of the fairies and Bottom of the laborers, respectively (they played these roles in ’94), is simply brilliant. Shimmying up and down poles (well-integrated into the set design of cave and temple by Bruce Lackovic) and hilariously miming the particulars of her reports to her master Oberon, Wasnak’s Puck is the crowning jewel in the unique athleticism of this production, echoed by fairies swinging and twirling on ropes and trapezes and the sexy slitherings of Titania (played by Jennifer West Savich) and Oberon (‘vid Buttaro.)…I’d only advise the players to take care not to speak their lines over the ample applause they’re likely to continue to get, deservedly, at Forest Meadows.
