The brilliant and considered one of the most enigmatic William Shakespeare’s plays on the Globe stage was produced by Artistic Director of the theater Dominic Dromgoole. He had been directing the Globe since 2006. In his period of time, he has produced on the carefully archeologically reconstructed stage of the Globe a series of Shakespeare’s performances which turned into noticeable events in the theater life: Coriolanus, Antony and Cleopatra, Love's Labour Lost, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, Henry IV. A Midsummer Night's Dream is his new production: the first night took place in London in 2013.
Dominic Dromgoole received a classic education in Cambridge where he had studied English philology and theater; not only he is a connoisseur and interpreter of W. Shakespeare’s heritage, but the great bard became ingrained in his life. The Will and Me: How Shakespeare Took over My Life book is telling about the influence which Shakespeare’s heritage produced on the author. Let us point out that the director was awarded in 2007 with the Sheridan Morley Prize for this job; he was the first recipient of the award.
The British critics had acknowledged A Midsummer Night's Dream performance as one of the best productions of Shakespeare’s comedies. “Dominic Dromgoole's direction is full of love to the material and is distinct with exquisite resourcefulness,” influential The Telegraph wrote. They use historic costumes and renaissance stage techniques in the performance.
