The show includes white men dressing as in Afros as black men... its black face 2018. Please do not support this show. It’s incredibly racist and reminicinst of Jim Crow characters. Again, do not support.

The first 30 minutes were great - it was like being at a 70s disco but the show itself is terrible - poor acting, ridiculous flouncing and gimmicky. We paid extra for seats at a table but kept being asked to clear our bags and...More

Welcome to Club Oberon! This is less a reenactment of Midsummer Night's Dream and more a 1970s disco club with some recognizable parallels and characters from the play acted out using seventies songs. If you go in expecting Shakespeare's wit or even full-blown skits, you...More
