Another ‘Dream’ Team

With Broadway about to burst with British imports this season, here’s a happy one being prepared for the next – Adrian Noble’s highly acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company “A Mid-summer Night’s Dream,” which looks as if it will arrive at the Nederlander Theater in late November at or near the end of a 20-week American tour. James M. Nederlander would lead the pack of American producers that will also include Elizabeth I. McCann.

While details are still being worked out, the engagement would bring the RSC back to Broadway for the first time since “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” in 1987. In addition, it would introduce to American audiences three of the finest young talents around – Alex Jennings (Theseus/Oberon); Barry Lynch (Puck) and Emma Fielding (Hermia) – while transporting another Anthony Ward set to rival his balloon-filled dreamscape seen last year in the RSC “Winter’s Tale” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
