When Timothy is cast as Puck in a high-school production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, he takes the role to heart--using the text to concoct a love potion he uses to turn his conservative town gay! How will they deal with their sudden transformations, especially the school jock (Timothy's secret love)? This invigorating musical is bursting with Broadway-quality songs and the kind of role reversals that would make Shakespeare proud.

"Director Tom Gustafson's musical WERE THE WORLD MINE is nothing if not ambitious....On the plus side are Cory James Krueckeberg's lyrics, many drawn from 'Midsummer' itself, and Jessica Fogle's pleasing music." 12/12/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "Most of the musical asides are played as fantasy daydreams....This is very effective..." 11/20/2008
