The Public Theater has announced casting for its Mobile Unit production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Jenny Koons.
The complete cast features Marinda Anderson (Hippolyta/Titania), Leland Fowler (Demetrius/Flute), Christopher Ryan Grant (Bottom), Merritt Janson (Theseus/Oberon), Carolyn Kettig (Hermia/Starveling), Jasai Chase Owens (Lysander/Snug), David Ryan Smith (Egeus/Quince/Fairy), Natalie Woolams-Torres (Puck), and Rosanny Zayas (Helena/Snout).

Now in its ninth year, the Mobile Unit's free tour (October 4-26) brings Shakespeare to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts by visiting correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social service organizations, and other community venues. There will also be a three-week engagement of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Public, running October 28-November 17.
