A Midsummer Night’s Dream
done right by a troupe of actors used to acting with and playing off each other. With Artistic Director Gregory Boyd directing, the Alley Theatre once again presents Shakespeare’s classic tale of love, transformation and magic in the night. Elizabeth Bunch (winner for Best Actress in the 2016 Houston Theater Awards) plays Hermia, and this time it’s opposite her real-life husband, Chris Hutchison, as Lysander. “I’ve done Hermia in Midsummer Night’s Dream
more than I have ever done anything else,” she says. “It’s a play worth any artist revisiting. It lends itself to interpretation in such a fun way because it’s got so much magic in it, which translates to a great way to play with theatrical magic.” 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (no performances October 26, October 27, November 1 or November 3); 8 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Sundays. Through November 5. 615 Texas. For information, call 713-220-5700 or visit alleytheatre.org
