Overview

Midsummer in Newtown paints the most intimate of portraits of a New England town as its citizens deploy the power of art to push beyond one of the greatest tragedies in American history. In the aftermath of 2012's Sandy Hook school shooting, Kramer learned that a group of artists from New York were traveling to Newtown to work with kids from the local school system to mount an adaptation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."
