DescriptionToil and Trouble Burlesque presents:

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Shakespearean Burlesque

Production Dates: September 19th and 26th, 2017
Come witness this sexy burlesque-fueled adaption of Shakespeare’s classic
comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, hosted by none other than Puck himself!
Toil and Trouble is proud to announce our debut full-length production of A
Midsummer Night’s Dream. The latest installment of Toil and Trouble will take
place on September 19th and 26th at 8pm at The Federal Bar in North
Hollywood. Our adaption of the play will follow the classic plot of Midsummer, with
a focus on the original text. It will feature eight different song, dance, and
burlesque numbers performed by a cast of LA’s most renowned cabaret
performers. (Oh yes, there will be stripping.)
As described by creative producer, Angie Hobin, “Toil and Trouble has something
for every kind of audience member that LA has to offer- not unlike how the theater
was back in the time of William Shakespeare himself. For our more scholarly
patrons, we have a vast myriad of ‘suggestive-textual-innuendos’ peppered in and
throughout the performances that will likely go unnoticed to anyone but those
more familiar with Shakespeare’s work. Our theater lovers will get to see the
classic scenes they know by heart unfold in ways they’ve never imagined, and our
burlesque fans will see some of the most talented and creative performers that the
LA burlesque scene has ever produced. Oh, and there will also be plenty of
boobs... for everyone. We like to think of it as being ‘low-brow Shakespeare, and
high-brow burlesque’... if that makes any sense at all.”
What to Expect: The doors to the theater will be open an hour prior to showtime,
at 7:00pm, and seating will be first come, first serve. Each of our patrons will be
greeted by a devilishly handsome door man, and a friendly bar staff. A magical
pre-show will begin 15 minutes prior to show time, and the show it’s self will begin
promptly at 8:00pm and will run until approximately 10:30pm with one 15 minute

intermission. Patrons are encouraged to dress up in either burlesque or
Shakespearean attire, and are more than encouraged to stay after the show and
have drinks at the bar with the cast!
Live Music: Toil and Trouble is very excited to welcome concert pianist Lauren
Emerson to the show as our our live accompanist, and newest company member!
Welcome aboard, Lauren!
