Yohangza's is a thoroughly entertaining abbreviated Dream, which leads its quartet of sweethearts a merry slapstick dance of fickle young love. At one point, they're chasing each other around in circles like the Keystone Kops. Later, Hang and Rue (Demetrius and Lysander) square up in a very unmacho duel, while Byock hurls herself across the stage at love rival Eeck in a slo-mo kung-fu kick.

What leaps across the language barrier is the process of enchanting and being enchanted ... The barriers between human and animal and vegetable become permeable. As they might in a dream in midsummer.
