CTH's A Midsummer Night’s Dream interlaces the stories of four lovers and a comical troupe of bumbling actors from the human world with those of a fairy kingdom in the supernatural realm. This extraordinary production weaves Harlem’s cultural legacy within Shakespeare’s text. Director Justin Emeka (professor of Oberlin college) invites the audience into an enchanted, concrete jungle where African spirits celebrate the playful and fickle nature of love through music, dance, and magic. Come experience Classical Theatre of Harlem like you never have before.
