Kerry Clawson
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a joy to behold at Ohio Shakespeare Festival. Neither the director nor the actors hold back in this beloved comedy, giving birth to numerous moments of over-the-top fun.  Benjamin Fortin, who will be a junior at Kent State, has come into his own with his wildly funny portrayal of the mechanical Flute, who takes on a skirt role in Pyramus and Thisbe, the outrageous play-within-the-play.

Christine Howey
Each of the actors in this production could be called out for individual accolades. But it is the tight ensemble performance, and the joy that emanates from it, that makes this Dream a keeper.
