**** Highly Recommended **** I really enjoyed Chicago Shakespeare’s new production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. One of Shakespeare’s most magical plays with its three different sets of people who would probably never interact in real life, is funny, romantic and fun to watch. They’ve added music and dance, and the set is simply spectacular. 4 BIG Spotlights
