Written by three-time Tony Award nominee Ken Ludwig, Midsummer/Jersey is a high-octane blend of the MTV reality show “Jersey Shore” and Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” set on the boardwalk of a seaside town in present-day New Jersey. The story is set into motion by the impending marriage of the New Jersey governor, love affairs of four beach-bound high school crushes, a lively crew of fairies and the staff of the local beauty salon. Add a love potion and the desire for mischief and the night takes a magical, mayhem-filled turn. With several weddings and the acting careers of six beauticians hanging in the balance, lovers take to the boardwalk, backed by pop music and an iPhone-obsessed wood sprite. »» VIEW OUR YOUTUBE VIDEO.
