THEATER: Nymph O' Mania, a modern twist on A Midsummer Night's Dream, opens tonight and runs through August 15. Set in a redwood forest in Northern California, the play features a wedding, an evil lumber company, hallucinogens, and tree nymphs, all of which make for quite an outrageous romp in the woods.
