Critical Acclaim

“T.R. Knight
(of Grey’s Anatomy fame)
is a gas as Nick Bottom. A GENUINE STAR… who certainly delivers for his fans.”

-CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“A family-friendly spectacle…there is fun to be had. 
And if you have a fashionista in your group, NO BETTER SHOW IN TOWN.”

-CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Inventive, imaginative, impressive… a BEAUTIFULLY AND HILARIOUSLY REALIZED bit of extravagant escapism.”

-THIRD COAST REVIEW

“T.R. Knight does an outstanding job…Sam Kebede was WILDLY ENTERTAINING AND FUN to watch as the mischievous Puck.”

-CHICAGO NOW
 

“T.R. Knight works well as the beset-upon Bottom.
The four-way brawl among the young lovers is FUNNY AND REAL.”

-CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Dowling’s directorial magic, creative team and the talented cast and ensemble will DELIGHT AT EVERY TURN.”

-PICTURE THIS POST

“TREAT YOURSELF THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
to some riotous humor and a beautiful visual landscape.”

-CHICAGO NOW

“As mid-winter’s madness beckons, it seems
an apt antidote and
A WELL-DESERVED DREAM.”

-STAGE AND CINEMA

“A guaranteed crowd-pleaser...with plenty of wowing special effects and standout sequences.”

-DAILY HERALD

“Renders fantasy visible...simply brilliant in every way, and audiences are going to love it.”

-WINDY CITY TIMES

Midsummer goes big... it is inarguably beautiful. The actors hit their marks, make the text accessible, and nail the timing.”

-CHICAGO NOW
