“It was a concert, yes, but there was also a theatrical event integrating Michael Gandolfi’s brisk and lovely ‘Themes from a Midsummer Night,’ with a performance of scenes from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’
It was a visual and sonic romp as players from Germantown-based Tennessee Shakespeare Company bounded across the stage — and even the musicians got to add some ham to the feast.
Thanks to Dan McCleary, the TSC founder who directed the action, the six richly costumed actors interacted with the musicians and maestro Michael Stern, evoking the goofy yet wondrous forested dream world that makes up much of one of Shakespeare’s most loved plays.”
