The production is a delight and both Janie (as Hippolyta and Titanya) and Aden Gillett (as Theseus and Oberon), with whom she often collaborates, are excellent. I have never seen a better set of Mechanicals and the "business" when they finally perform their play in front of the court, on a wheel-on miniature version of the Globe stage, is absolutely hilarious: Trevor Fox as Bottom, Brendan O'Hea as Quince and Richard Bremmer as Snug were all terriffic. It was only the second night they had performed together in front of a live audience and I'm sure it will be even better when it has been touring.
