This is one production I would very much like to see become availableon DVD. An excellent cast presents this classic in Central Park for amagical evening under the stars. Originally shown on A&E, it is a puredelight and whilst using only a minim of special effects, delivers aperformance of a sort I ...
where can I get a copy of this on VHS?! This is my absolute FAVORITEperformance of this play! To be honest, I remember little of the video,since it's been 20 years since I've seen it. I was at least able torecord an audio tape of it, however. But my college roommate and Iwatched it when it was on A&...
This is the best version of Midsummer's I've seen, of the three I've seen(1935, James Cagney as Bottom; 1981 BBC version, Nigel Davenport asTheseus;this one). I'm afraid, though, that all the fairy characters seem to beacting just a little too full of themselves, especially William Hurt. Notthat t...
When even the great Christine Baranski gives a boring performance, youknow a production is in deep trouble directorially.This technically gorgeous staging works well when we're with the actingtroupe preparing its version of "Pyramus and Thisbe." Those parts ofthe play are cleverly directed and beaut...
This version of Shakespeare's play is well-acted but not particularlyexciting. The funniest performance comes from Christine Baranski asHelena.The 1999 and 1935 versions are more interesting than this sometimeslong-winded production. Granted, this is a televised stage productionwhereas the others ha...
I was dissapointed in James Lapine's depiction of the fairies of theAthenian forest. Their costumes and acting was fun but in general, it waswithout the magic that continually glimmers through in Shakespeare's verse.With the exception of a few scenes i.e. Helena and Hermia's fight, thewholeplay lac...
This is one of the best (and funniest) productions I have ever seen inmany years of theater going. I saw this on PBS back in the 1980's andhave been looking for it on video/DVD ever since. Is there any place topurchase this? Please provide info if this is possible.I have seen performances of this pl...
As a drama teacher I've directed MSND 3 times and have seen a numberlive productions, including one at the Stratford Shapkespeare festival.This is without a doubt the one I love most. I like Hurt's growling,tumbling Oberon and his very physical relationship with Puck. ChristineBaranski is, as noted ...
I am an English teacher and use this version for its hilarious Pyramusand Thisbe segment. It is done perfectly and raucously, just asShakespeare would have wanted! Bottom is excellent. The students alwaysfall out - even those too cool to laugh! My VHS is almost completelydeteriorated from use. Does ...
It's been a very long time since I saw this -- near the originalairing, and that's the only time. I'd love to get it/see it again. WhatI remember most positively...beyond overall good quality, and theoutdoor theatrical setting, which gave it the charm of a performance(vs. a movie)... is William Hurt...
Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this? I've an old lady in mylife who's wanted this for years and I still haven't found one for her(been looking for years). It doesn't matter if it's VHS or DVD. Really,as long as it's watchable. I can't believe that A&E hasn't made itavailable. Or if they ...
This representation of the play is by far the best I have witnessed.The direction and delivery is perfect and makes for a very hilariousplay indeed. My only sorrow is that this one play has never been givenit's due A & E delivered this to libraries in VHS form a two tape setit was the first video I ...
The best thing about this is William Hurt as Oberon. He steals thefocus and makes it into something different from all other productionsof this play. Great. That's all I really want to say about it. Shakespeare is alwaysworthwhile.If you are bored with this play, try this one out. It gives a neat sp...
