FAIRY BALL: Though it is technically not summer yet, Silicon Valley Shakespeare kick it off early with 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.'

William Shakespeare’s summertime comedy about love and mischief is brought to life by Silicon Valley Shakespeare with an entirely female cast—fitting, given Shakespeare’s loyalty to the heroine and oft-floated theory that Old Bill may have actually been a woman. In one plot line, Titania and Oberon, queen and king of the fairies, have a big tiff, and Oberon enlists the “shrewd and knavish sprite,” Puck, to get back at Titania. Meanwhile, four Athenians caught in a messy love rectangle run off into the same forest. That’s when Puck gets into some classic spritely business with magical flower juice. Runs through June 23.
