Theater Review

Cirque du Soleil meets Shakespeare in the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival's charming outdoor staging of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Shakespeare's romantic comedy looks at love on three levels - in the ranks of the royals, among young people and in the fairy kingdom. In director Laura Hackman's breezy production, some of those fairies fly from the trees.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM -- Through July 23 -- Evergreen House Meadow, 4545 N. Charles St. -- $25 -- 410-366-8596 or baltimoreshakespeare.org
