"Enter the dream… Folger Theatre’s “whimsical and wondrous” (BroadwayWorld) A Midsummer Night's Dream is the show of the summer. “There is never a dull moment” (MD Theatre Guide) in Folger’s reimagining of Shakespeare's most magical and beloved comedy.

Be swept away by 90-minutes of sheer delight and romance in the majestic Great Hall of the National Building Museum."
