MIDNIGHT MADNESS...is a rollicking romp set in present-day Manhattan with politics in play. Based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, the incumbent Republican Mayor of Manhattan, about to marry his Democratic opponent, finds himself in a fantastical conflict of events, involving two pairs of lost lovers, a troupe of amateur actors from Queens and a power outage in Manhattan, all mischievously manipulated by none other than Puck and the Fairies of Central Park. The result: a hilarious storyline of mistaken identities, comic confusion and sheer charm set to a glorious, original score.
Family Show, appropriate for all ages. All children under age 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
