From the internationally renowned Third Rail Projects (creators of Then She Fell, one of Ben Brantley's top ten shows of 2012), and the producers of the Drama Desk Nominated Shake and Bake: Love's Labour's Lost, comes this 360 degree environmental staging of Shakespeare's beloved comedy. This sumptuous theatrical experience features an elegantly designed tasting menu and is housed in an historic building, just steps from New York City's Union Square.
New Yorker "Delectable in more ways than one . . . It’s no easy feat, but the director and choreographer, Zach Morris, keeps everything tight, so, even as the central quartet of confused lovers goes into peak farce mode, with a zany mess of swoons, fisticuffs, and tumbles, it all comes off flawlessly. The entire cast is uproariously on point . . . if that weren’t enough, the cast also serves the feast . . . and there are no bad bites."
Time Out NY "In a triumph of versatility, the eight performers in this inventive and delightfully madcap adaptation of Shakespeare’sA Midsummer Night’s Dream not only play its royals, lovers, faeries and rude mechanicals, but also serve a light and delicious five-course tasting menu throughout . . . By dessert, the evening may seem like a dream from which you’d rather not wake."
TheaterMania "Though It be but little, it is fierce! . . . Entering the space at Café Fae . . . feels like wandering into a repurposed speakeasy with just a tiny strip of performance space in the middle of the dining patrons. That doesn't stop director and choreographer Zach Morris from sending his actors flying across tables and flopping on the ground inches away from metal pipes. Midsummer's quartet of lovers get raucous — and spatial limitations be damned, these paramours are going to take their passions to the mat if it (literally) kills them."
