Shakespeare Theatre Best Puck Ever

WebBanner-15-FFAWashington’s Shakespeare Theatre is presenting free performances of Midsummer Night’s Dream through 9/13. This is the 3rd time I’ve seen that play since July & this version was superb. Adam Green does a magnificent job as Puck.  In a Washington Post profile of the three local versions of Shakespeare’s play, Green commented, “You don’t have Shakespeare when you don’t have the text.”  His performance perfectly captures the magic and meaning of the Bard’s words.  And he doesn’t cloy like some Pucks I have seen. I hope Green gets ample opportunities to reprise this role in high-profile venues in the future.

I hope the Washingtonians who loathed my Wall Street Journal oped on Silent Shakespeare take the opportunity to see this production.

Added bonus: The theater lets you bring the beer you buy there into the show.

    And how are the hand and arm signals?

    The beer was damn good so I missed the signals.

    Pantomime-free Shakespeare – except for the gestures to help express the Bard’s words
