A Midsummer Night's Dream Author:William Shakespeare Licoln Kirstein writes in his comments on producing A Midsummer Night's Dream: "Actors are not necessarily trained dancers, and in the Bergamask dance they can be as rude and hearty as possible. Mistakes are only the funnier if the simple pattern be performed with rustic energy. In this play the most important element...is not virtuosity but n... more »eatness. The stage represents, essentially, a ballroom, and the dances are more analytically social than brilliantly theatrical."
