|Scott Wentworth, as Nick Bottom|
|Kevin Klein, as Bottom, The Weaver|
|James Cagney, turned ass|
Nick Bottom, The Weaver, in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" may be annoying to his fellow actors, but his character must be one of the most winsome personalities in Shakespeare. He is so enthused about performing at the royal court, that he wants to play every single part. In fact, he steps on Peter Quince's toes frequently, because he is keen as well to direct the show. Turned into an ass, he is even more a belly full of laughs. It is Shakespeare at his comedic best.
