“Shakespeare in Hollywood” Jun 5 – Jun 20, 2009

sih_bgIt’s 1934 Hollywood. Shakespeare’s famous fairies, Oberon and Puck, have found themselves transported to the filmset of Max Reinhardt’s production of their very own story in Shakepeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Lo and behold they are cast as themselves in the movie. Before they know it, they are caught up in the glamour and glitz of stardom surrounded by gossip columnsts, starlets, arrogant actors, costumers and movie studio executives. Just as in the play, love triangles develop with the help of the magical flower used by Oberon on his unsuspecting fools. This is an hilarious romp in the golden age of Hollywood.
