The Alabama Shakespeare Festival theater in Montgomery, Alabama, opened
about ten years back, and one of the first productions on its Festival
stage was a wonderful production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. I mean,
I was only in high school then and had not the critical eye I have
developed since then (sigh), but my memory indicates that the production
was impeccable and sprightly done. The director of the Festival was
Katz (I believe, and I don't remember his first name), but he has since
left, taking quite a few from the repertory company with him.
I would encourage any looking into the performance history of this play
to research this production; it may not have had the world-wide acclaim
of others, but I would find it hard to believe that a better one has
been done in recent years.
