I redeemed my gift certificate from my sister and saw a Midsummers Night's Dream at the Guthrie last night with my friend Rachel. I'm still hanging onto the coupon for dinner for 2 at Cue for Tim and I, but considering his knee, he really couldn't bend it and be comfortable in the seats so I took someone else.
I love this comedy of Shakespeare. It's really hard to screw it up. I loved a lot of the extra items that this production added. A lot of dance, music, song, wire work, zip lines, it was awesome! I was unimpressed with the actress who played Hermia, but the actress who played Helena was excellent! The fairies were great, but the players stole the show! All of them!!! What a fantastic show!
It runs to June 22nd and I highly recommend catching a performance.
