Lunatics, Lovers and Poets
As the mischief and magic of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to a flourish, the Duke of Athens remarks, "The lunatic, the lover and the poet are of imagination all compact." This season, every show explores an aspect of this insight as lunatics, lovers and poets are laid bare upon our stage.
The Rep is extremely proud to launch a two-year collaboration with The St. Louis Black Rep. The Black Rep is one of the most important regional theaters in the country. The Rep is committed to becoming a theatre that is welcoming, inclusive and accountable. At Nebraska Rep, Black Lives Matter.
Please note that there will be no in-person audiences for Rep performances this season. For your safety, all performances will be professionally filmed and available to stream at the designated show times.
