    Foolish Mortals, Naughty Fairies: The Usual Mischief

    Charles Isherwood

    April 29, 2012: A shower of rose petals descending on a carpet of black wood shavings provides one of the many visual allurements in the Classic Stage Company’s production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The tilted mirrored wall rising at the back of the theater — like a humongous disco ball squashed flat — reflects the flurrying downfall back to the audience, amplifying the magical feeling of being caught up in the eye of a hot-pink hurricane.

    Thisbe OK, but not great

    Elisabeth Vincentelli

    April 29, 2012: This production of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” looks real good. And not just because the cast includes Christina Ricci, Bebe Neuwirth and at least two guys who can’t act but have spectacular chests.

    Neuwirth, Ricci in madcap and sexy 'Midsummer'

    Jocelyn Noveck

    April 29, 2012: "Lord, what fools these mortals be!" "Very true, Puck. But my, how buff and toned they are, too. Get me the number of their trainer!" OK, we're taking a bit of liberty with Shakespeare's dialogue here. Oberon, king of the fairies, doesn't make that precise comment as he observes the four amorously confused lovers of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" duke it out in the freewheeling and highly entertaining new production at the Classic Stage Company that opened Sunday.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream

    Adam Markovitz

    April 30, 2012: Sitting in beach chairs, two men — one in a pink elephant costume, the other dressed like a sci-fi rock god — eat popcorn while two half-naked women claw at each other from perches on the backs of their shirtless suitors. It's not an image that quickly brings the word Shakespearean to mind. And judging by the number of similarly gonzo moments in this Off Broadway production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Classic Stage Company (running through May 20), that's exactly the point.
