A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM


Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy graces Mu’s stage this spring with its confused lovers, thespian mechanicals, and fantastic fairies.  Infuse this Western classic with Japanese taiko drumming, Korean mask dance, and Kabuki sword fighting and you have a Mu-style Midsummer the Bard could never have imagined.
