“There is something about this performance, which is important in many ways. It reminds you how it is to be human, to be in love, how crazy and confusing can this thing be. And it’s the only performance that I know (…) ending with a blessing, with the blessing for the audience. Theater can do this, it can remind us that we are human beings” stated Tim Robbins on Thursday, during a press conference, according to Agerpress.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare, directed by Tim Robbins, will have three extraordinary representations at the Comedy Theater, after being presented to the Sibiu International Theater Festival.
