Shakespeare , thou art... translated!

Check out The Donkey Show, a now apparently permanent production of the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge: a loose (very loose) disco-themed adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Can we say, trading on Shakespeare's name? The web site boasts: "For birthdays, girls' night out, bachelorette parties, corporate events, and more—the perfect no-hassle way to host your celebration."
The WGBH video clip embedded in the site is hilarious, and there's a really interesting bit around 5:11:
There you have it.  "It pays to do your homework and brush up on Midsummer Night's Dream."
