A few days into planning and recording our audio drama, director Daniel Mesta had the thought to add another layer to this production of Shakespeare’s classic “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. He introduced the connections to New Orleans. What other connections do you find between New Orleans and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream?”
“I hope that people emerge from this with a newfound sense of wonder at what creative people do, and don’t take it for granted.” ~Daniel Mesta
Shakespeare and I have always had a bit of a difficult relationship. From reading his plays in my high school English class to seeing a couple performances at Shakespeare’s Globe in London on a study abroad with my university it’s been a long and bumpy road. Much like my complicated relationship with the Bard himself, many of the characters in his plays have complicated relationships.
Everyone has their own way of escaping from reality. DAM Good Productions presents, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream: An Audio Drama.” Coming soon to audio streaming near you!

I constantly worry that someone will find out that I’m a fraud. Am I? Of course not.
When I grew up, I became a teacher, I work with writers, and I study history. So, how did I manage to do everything I wanted to do? I became a dramaturg.
