Meet the Cast of Midsummer! Spotlight on Neev Bar-David (Egeus/Moth)
This is Neev's first show with Classics on the Rocks, though his friend and former roommate was a big hit in last summer's show. We're delighted to have Neev aboard, in both Midsummer's court scenes and fairy land! We also can't wait to see Meryl Streep play him in his life movie.
What's your #1 bucket list role, Shakespeare or otherwise?
Playing a person that actually existed/exists would be on it. As far as Shakespeare, I would love to play Bassanio from The Merchant of Venice or Hamlet.
What do you do when you're not acting - or what would you do if you weren't an actor?
If I wasn't an actor I would want to do something that involves traveling all over the world. Maybe a pilot or a pirate.
What's your most embarrassing childhood memory (that you're willing to share)?
Getting Blonde Highlights when I was 12 and instantly regretting it.
If a movie was being made of your life which actor would you choose to play you? What's the movie called?
Justin Baldoni or Meryl Streep. It would be called "Believe in the Neev."
Join us this summer for one of Shakespeare's most beloved comedies filled with frolicking fairies, a ridiculous troupe of actors, and the most epic love triangle ever seen.
A Midsummer Night's Dream performs July 12, 13, 19, 20 at 7pm and July 21 at 5pm at the Alchemical Theatre Laboratory. Tickets may be purchased in advance here.
About Classics on the Rocks:
Shakespeare doesn't have to be complicated and it's our mission at Classics on the Rocks to make classical theatre accessible, exciting, palatable, and fun for everyone - whether you're brand new to Shakespeare or have read the canon cover to cover.
At Classics on the Rocks, we believe that just as whiskey doesn't need anything more than rocks to tame its bite. Shakespeare doesn't need fancy concepts, modernizations, frilly costumes, or big sets to make it relatable. All you need are talented actors who trust the text and tell the story. It's classics served simply on the rocks.
