Cinnabar Young Repertory Theater presents
by Ken Ludwig
Midsummer/Jersey is the hilarious high-octane re-telling of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in modern-day New Jersey. The story is set into motion by the impending marriage of the Governor of New Jersey, the love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon (run by Patti Quince and Stylist Nikki Bottom). The night takes a magical, mayhem-filled turn when Oberon--angered by his wife who refuses to buy him a muscle car for his birthday--and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love-potion-filled flower and a desire for mischief-making. With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, the lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.
