Folger Theatre’s magical production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is onstage now at The Playhouse at the National Building Museum. There are few plays better suited to summertime than Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedy. Before you catch the show, find out which character from the play you are by planning your ideal summer, from your vacation to the songs on the radio.


Lord, what fools these mortals be
To write a quiz that makes me Puck
When years ago I was the Queen
In a High School show where the play was the product!
