Alec Friedman plays Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the first of two summer productions from Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play is by William Shakespeare.
Question: Who is Oberon?
Alec Friedman: Oberon is King of the Fairies. He is often manipulative, he'll do whatever it takes to get what he wants. He puts a love potion on Titania to get a changeling.
Q: Why do you like Shakespeare?
A.F.: It's so well thought out. Every word is chosen perfectly.
Q: What would be a dream come true for you?
A.F.: I've got to say driving in a '65 Mustang across the country. That would be fun.
