Mielziner, an accomplished director in her 'first-life', has been coaching the cast online for weeks leading up to the show, and is polishing their performances as Berchot's construction literally grows around them.

Berchot - an accomplished set and costume designer has created a dark and twisted forest clearing - custom-built using a variety of unique textures, scripts, and sculpted objects, the full extent of which will not be revealed to audiences until the first performance of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" on August 15, 2008.
