The show is at the Uptown Theater, 1300 Jadwin Ave.
The Rude Mechanicals’ version is a sexy, sassy take on Midsummer, with the story’s young loves escaping a corporate, structured world for The Forest, a gay club modeled on Seattle’s Capitol Hill scene. All sorts of twists and turns and spells and fun ensues.
