    A Midsummer Night's Dream is, in a way, Romeo and Juliet turned inside out--a tragedy turned farcical. The tragedy both are based on is the story of "Pyramus and Thisbe." In one, Ovid's story is treated as a melodrama (in Romeo and Juliet) and in another, it is fodder for comedy (in A Midsummer Night's Dream). The tale of "Pyramus and Thisbe" is simply told in Book IV of Metamorphoses. The title characters are in love with one another, but they cannot be together because they are separated

    Love is like a bright star — twinkling, magical, and often times the only sign of light in an otherwise dark expanse, a mechanism against the banalities of everyday life. Yet, like the L.A. smog that engulfs the glowing, shimmering celestial bodies from a hungry viewer’s eyes, love is also potentially all-encompassing, blinding, and tragic. For centuries, bards, poets, storytellers, and artists across all spectrums have dedicated their work to capturing both the darkest corners and most luminous
