A hilarious and hilarious tale of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” set on the boardwalk of a modern New Jersey seaside town. The story revolves around the impending wedding of the Governor of New Jersey, love stories of four teenage boys on the beach, a lively team of fairies, and staff at the local beauty salon.
