No, not one of Uptown's signature lingerie pool parties, though it's so darn hot during these outdoor performances that we'd seriously contemplate a bikini if this wasn't such a family-friendly environment. We recommend packing a picnic, a chilled bottle of wine, and plenty of bug spray before settling in to enjoy Shakespeare Dallas' interpretation of the romantic comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's a perfect love quadrangle—Hermia loves Lysander, but she's technically engaged to the Duke. Helena, their friend, loves Demetrius, but Demetrius is clueless. In order to keep Hermia from having to marry someone else, all four run off into the forest, where their lives and relationships are complicated by a bunch of meddling fairies.
