The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre says
The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre celebrates springtime with A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare's allegory for sensual love, lost innocence and hidden fears. The play is an enchanted playground where love comes as suddenly as death and the characters are all but consumed with sexual passion.

Artistic Director Carmen Khan draws inspiration for this production, from the bright colors and sounds of India, especially Jodhpur, also known as the Blue City. The result is an explosion of beautiful colors and hauntingly beautiful music. This is reminiscent of the ancient Hindu Festival, Holi, sometimes called The Festival of Colors or Love. During this springtime festival it is a time to come together, to laugh, love, repair broken relationships and celebrate life to the full.

For Khan, who is half Indian, these themes resound in
A Midsummer Night's Dream. So, too, resound darker themes: jealousy, erotic obsession, and violence. This production is indeed a celebration of many colors of the human- and forest fairy- spirit. It promises to be a distinct experience.
