If you’ve not familiar with the play, here’s the quick summary: “Two pairs of lovers (one requited, one not so much) and a rag-tag group of thespians find themselves lost in the woods right as the fairy kingdom is turned on its head by its quarreling leaders. Nature will never be the same! Lord what fools these mortals be.”
If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats–I’ve tried all three price levels (Main Floor, Box Seats, Balcony), & I’ve had a good view of the production from each vantage point. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission is worth every calorie. Yum.
Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets to A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
- For regular-priced tickets, you’ll get the best deal on Thursdays, plus students & educators save $5 on adult tickets (excluding Saturday nights), and seniors (age 65+) & military with ID save $3 off the adult ticket price for most performances. If you can make it, you can snag $15 general admission tickets to the preview performance on July 5 or $20 general admission tickets to the preview performance on July 6, 2018.
FYI re: parking: Unless it’s a Sunday or another exempt time, they’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so make sure to pay if you use them. Or you can park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.
Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta.
