This magical outdoor production brought Shakespeare's classic tale to new life in NOMA's Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

Some Personal History...
Perhaps the biggest thrill performing ‘Midsummer’ was the time spent off stage, gathered on the front steps after the audience had traveled back to the oak grove, listening for the ROAR that would come from the audience once Jason Kirkpatrick as Oberon declared ‘I AM INVISIBLE’ and simply took a stone-still pose amongst the eight foot collection of naked male statues.  Such a simple bit of staging causing such utter and instantaneous joy amongst hundreds of theatregoers from age four to ninety.  And what a roar it made.  Incredible. –A.J. Allegra
