The Cue Theatre's production of Midsummer/Jersey -- the hilarious high-octane re-telling of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream set on the boardwalk of a town in modern-day New Jersey. The story is set into motion by the impending marriage of the Governor, the love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon. The night takes a magical, mayhem-filled turn when Oberon--angered by his wife who refuses to buy him a muscle car for his birthday--and the impish Puck arrive on the scene armed with a powerful love-potion-filled flower and a desire for mischief making. With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, the lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite.
