A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
A SOLO PERFORMANCE
Two-time Elliot Norton Award winner Benjamin Evett brings Shakespeare’s beloved comedy to life with mind-blowing originality. Playing fourteen characters, using only a few hand props, he vaults from fairy to lover, from male to female, powerful king to humble citizen, with the zest, comic timing, and attention to Shakepeare’s glorious verse that Boston audiences have come to expect of him. Hilarious, beautiful, enchanting and awe-inspiring, this Dream will leave you gasping, laughing, and cheering for more.
A perfect holiday event for the whole family. Escape the Midwinter Blues and visit this Magical Midsummer!
Live music composed and performed by Jay Mobley. Directed by Jess Ernst.

WHAT IS MAB?
It's theatre that matters to communities, big and small.
"She comes in shape no bigger than an agate stone on the forefinger of an alderman..."
WHEN WE'RE SMALL:
We strip Shakespeare and other great dramas down to the purest essence, creating fully professional productions that use only one to three actors.
This approach allows us to bring innovative theatre to people where they live and work. We perform:
for students in schools
for neighborhoods, in intimate settings such as libraries and community centers
for people who have challenges moving about, such as folks in hospital wards and assisted living facilities.
for neuro-diverse people for whom bright lights, loud music and crowds prevent their enjoyment of great drama.
for people in the deaf community and people with physical disabilities
And, yes, we even perform in traditional theaters as well!
Queen Mab productions are affordable, portable, and truly celebrate the actor’s craft.
WHEN WE'RE BIG:
Sometimes a show like "The Juke" comes along that is so exciting, so relevant, that speaks to the principles of community, neighborhood and family that we believe in. We just have to do it. Once we make it, we can shrink it, and send it out into the world.
