Abstract:

To hear Shakespeare in its original pronunciation is truly to hear Shakespeare for the first time. Through this intimate arena production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, a talented cast directed and dialect-coached by Professor Paul Meier captures a single performance in Early Modern English pronunciation from the play's November 2010 run at The University of Kansas. This delightfully accessible production-conceived in collaboration with linguist David Crystal, the world's preeminent expert on EME pronunciation-adds a richness seldom heard since Shakespeare's time, restoring lost rhymes and wordplay.
