The Gorilla Rep is one of the best things about living in New York. I've seen many productions of a Midsummer's Night Dream, some with world class actos, but none connects with me like the Gorilla Rep. Whey they perform Shakespeare they aren't dusting off a museum piece. It is living theater. The comedies are funny. You laugh out loud. They don't try to transform the play. They are true to the original. They just do it in a way that shakes the cobwebs off it. I always make sure to take new people to see their shows because they are a revelation.
This company puts incredibly high-quality and touching representations of theatrical classics at the reach of thousands of theater lovers in some of the most beautiful and special locations in New York. A must of every summer!
