Hippolyta must marry Theseus, and she’s not particularly happy about it. On the day of the wedding rehearsal, as the musicians and caterers work to prepare, an unusual wedding planner takes charge in an attempt to make the bride’s dreams come true. Magic and mayhem transport us to a hilarious dream world in this fun and fanciful interpretation of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy.
