This fundraising event features the play A Midsummer Night's Dream directed by Julie Taymor and presented in a magnificent film.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare’s joyous comedy about the universal theme of love and it complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, and marriage. This Polonsky Shakespeare Center production brilliantly conjoins four intertwined stories: the marriage of the Athenian Duke Theseus to the Amazon queen Hippolyta; the warring Oberon and Titania, king and queen of the fairies; the madcap follies of four lovers in a forest; and the comically earnest efforts of a group of working men to stage a love-play for the royal wedding. Directed by Julie Taymor, her vision presents a fantasia of light and shadow. The stage breathes with the miraculous charms and powerful illusions of love. [2015, USA, Runtime: 144 min)

Julie Taymor is the first woman to win the Tony Award® for Best Direction of a Musical, as well as a Tony for Best Costumes, for her production of The Lion King. She has directed four major films: Titus, Frida, Across the Universe and most recently, The Tempest.

Adam Feldman of Time Out New York declares this production worthy of “FIVE STARS. Visionary
director Julie Taymor is a thrilling painter of theater…she sprinkles each scene with creative fairy
dust. You’d be hard pressed to find [a production] that rivals Taymor’s for beauty.”

 

 

 


Gender Revolution: A JOURNEY WITH KATIE COURIC

Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00 pm

Admission: $5 per person. Reservations can be purchased online here or by calling the office, 302-645-9095. Advance reservations will close Tuesday, May 2 at 12:00 noon. If not sold out, admission will be available at the door. Please note: tickets are not refundable.

It used to be simple: You were a boy or you were a girl. Girls wore pink, and boys wore blue; girls played with dolls, and boys played with trucks. Yet around the globe, these traditional notions of gender are changing rapidly, and the labels are no longer so clear cut. National Geographic sets out to explore this evolving concept of gender through the lens of science, society and culture in the groundbreaking two-hour special Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric.

Gender Revolution explores the complexities of gender in everyday life, from the moment we are born through our twilight years. To better understand this complex social and scientific issue, Couric crisscrossed the U.S. to talk with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors and families to learn more about the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern culture on gender identity. With conversations that range from the scientifically enlightening to the deeply personal – and coinciding with the January issue of National Geographic magazine devoted to stores about gender from all over the world – Couric’s unflinching search for truth sheds light on countless untold stories of struggle, understanding, ignorance, hurt and love.
