Dean sits down with Christiana Clark and Adam Wesley Brown from the Chicago Shakespeare Theater to talk about the Short Shakespeare presentation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. The production is a shortened, 75 minute version of the classic play and is perfect for all ages.

Christiana and Adam discuss adapting the timeless words of the Bard himself and how classic theater can be a stimulating experience for young audiences. They also perform a scene from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” as Titania and Bottom.
