    A Midsummer's Night Dream--The Public Theater

    Jesse Green

    July 31, 2017: Try as I might, I could not discern in the Public Theater’s Central Park production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” a single reference to Donald J. Trump. What a relief! Not that it would have been impossible to interpolate the president into the proceedings, as the Public’s “Julius Caesar” notably did earlier this summer; the play’s capaciousness makes nothing unlikely. If you wanted, you could discover auguries of almost any contemporary flash point in the great comedy: global warming, drug abuse, male privilege, transracial adoption.
