"A funny thing happened to me on the way to the theatre."
Shakespeare’s greatest clowns—the popular mechanicals from "A Midsummer Night’s Dream"—take center stage in a riotously funny imagining of life behind the scenes during rehearsals for "Pyramus and Thisbe." Complete with Shakespearean verse, clowning, vaudeville, slapstick, farce and standup comedy, this unhinged feast of wit and profanity is sure to leave you in stitches.
