Would you ever really want to meet a fairy? In a time when belief in magic has faded from our world, a group of actors rehearsing scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the woods happen upon a lonely fairy. Driven by a sense of joyful mischief, he enchants them to perform for him. Shakespeare’s rollicking tale of magic, confusion, betrayal, love, and friendship gets a contemporary makeover in NY Shakespeare Exchange’s February production.
