Through June 1st, the good old Curran Theater is presenting a Bollywood-inflected version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which has been translated into a mixture of seven Indian languages, plus English. Created in 2005 in India and later performed at Stratford-upon-Avon (and across the UK), the show includes, at a minimum, the following:

  • Singing!
  • Dancing!
  • A man magically transformed into a donkey!

So what’s not to like? Here’s the Examiner review that originally clued me in. And here’s the review, where I got that picture. Even more information is available here, where you can also buy advance tickets. Finally, here’s the official website of the show.

Performances are at 8:00 PM Thursday through Sunday. There are also two matinee performances remaining at 2:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $35-$80.
