Classic Stage Company has announced complete casting for A Midsummer Night's Dream, to run April 4 - May 20, with an opening on April 29. Tony Speciale will direct the production.

Shakespeare's comic romance focuses on the misadventures of two couples stumbling through the woods outside of Athens, unwittingly besotted with a mysterious potion from the fairy king Oberon.

In addition to the previously announced Bebe Neuwirth, who will play both Hippolyta and the fairy queen Titania, and Christina Ricci, who will play one of the young lovers, Hermia, the company will feature Jordan Dean (Demetrius), Nick Gehlfuss (Lysander), David Greenspan (Flute/Fairy), Halley Wegryn Gross (Helena), Anthony Heald (Theseus/Oberon), Erin Hill (Starveling/Fairy), Chad Lindsey (Snout/Fairy), Taylor Mac (Egeus/Puck), James Patrick Nelson (Snug/Fairy), Steven Skybell (Bottom), and Rob Yang (Quince/Fairy).

The creative team will include Mark Wendland (scenic design), Andrea Lauer (costume design), Christian Frederickson, and Ryan Rumery (original music and sound design).
