The Thur night Midsummer's was sparkling and sensual. Even explicit at times, but in good fun. Some of the costumes are wilder, more evocative this year.
The players remain attuned to the audience, plucking humor from audience reactions, esp the front-row people. It's the easiest 2-hour (no intermission) Shakespeare I can imagine.
