A brief look at the Classical Theater of Harlem's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" from the director's view.

​ “It is as fresh as country lemonade, with its smart casting, and much is made of its African, Caribbean and contemporary American influences…. Justin Emeka, the director, has done wonders in terms of his cast’s rare and nuanced understanding of the Elizabethan words they are called on to speak.”  

           -New York Times


adapted and directed

by Justin Emeka.

“Director Justin Emeka has spun gold out of the simple cloth of park theatre through the use of hip hop, Caribbean, and African influences.”
