‘Shakespeare’ gets extension

'Night's Dream' disco revamp proves a hit

The “Shakespeare Exploded!” program started by new a.d. Diane Paulus at American Repertory Theater has proved a hit, with two shows getting an extended life at the Cambridge, Mass., venue.

An update of Paulus’ long-running Off Broadway hit “The Donkey Show” is a disco-era riff on “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Aud demand has prompted ART to continue the show in an open-ended run. Brit troupe Punchdrunk’s “Sleep No More,” a reimagining of “Macbeth” staged in a disused schoolhouse, will play an additional 16 dates through Feb. 7.

Paulus is currently repped on Broadway by the revival of “Hair.”
