Check out the press release below, along with some reviews!
Mainspring Collective, in collaboration with The Players Theatre, presents Dream of Me, a multi-media theatre piece based on Charles Mee's 'Fetes de la Nuit'. Set in New York City, the play (written by Alexandria LaPorte and directed by Hilary Krishnan) is a voyeuristic exploration of love, youth, naiveté, and the struggle for finding fulfillment, both in and out of relationships.
This multi-media work infuses text inspired by Charles Mee with video art, original music, memorable performances, and innovative dance. The resulting vignettes are an eye-popping series embarking upon the complexity of human relationships and life in the city.
"A poignant and passionate piece, it explores the deepest sorrows and boundless joys that love inflicts on the hearts of New York City dwellers. Dream of Me is a powerful, inherently human work that is a must-see for anyone who ponders the profundity of love and appreciates theater that stimulates the mind."
Kristin Forte for Show Business Weekly.
"Fueled by a young and vibrant cast, the piece lightly touches on every aspect of sex and relationships, cleverly illustrating the anxiety and the freedom of the modern hunt for Mr. or Mrs. Right. Men dress as women, anything can happen, and nothing is sacred. But just like that, Dream of Me morphs into a poignant piece, contemplating the softer moments between us."
