It's 1934, and Shakespeare's most famous fairies, Oberon (Edward Brence) and Puck (Abby Doyle), have magically materialized on the Hollywood set of filmmaker Max Reinhardt's (Christopher Joyce) A Midsummer Night's Dream. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, these two fictional characters are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves. The mischievous magic of moviedom sparkles in this hilarious comic romp, which is silly, slapstick-y, and smart. Starring studio boss Jack Warner (Joe Whitesell), heavyweight Jimmy Cagney (Jemarc Axinto), matinee idol Dick Powell (Justin Masterson), gadabout and Queen of Hollywood Louella Parsons (Maggie Schmidt), and a bevy of movie set extras and romances.
Says The Baltimore Sun: "Shakespeare in Hollywood is so deliciously inventive, you'd swear [playwright Ken] Ludwig and the Bard were in cahoots. [It’s] at once poignant and funny, literary and farcical, sophisticated and silly, political and fanciful, high-brow and low-brow. A delight!" Commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD had its world premiere in 2003 at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. and won the Helen Hayes award for Best New Play of the Year.
Performances of SHAKESPEARE IN HOLLYWOOD take place in the Bruce Davis Theater, Montgomery Hall, at 8:00 p.m. on April 17-19 & 24-26 and at 2:00 p.m. on April 19 & 27. There is no performance on Easter Sunday, April 20. Ticket prices are $4 for students, faculty, SMCM staff, senior citizens, and Arts Alliance members; $6 general admission. To make reservations, contact the Theater Box Office at 240-895-4243 (ext. 4243) or email email@example.com.
