WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

MICHAEL HOFFMAN's devotion to Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" began with the Idaho Shakespeare Festival's inaugural production in which he played Lysander. While studying renaissance drama as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University a few years later, he directed another production of the play that led to an offer to direct "Privileged." A comedy written by Hoffman and "Restoration" screenwriter Rupert Walters, this undergraduate film featured the debut performances of Hugh Grant, James Wilby and Imogen Stubbs.

Hoffman most recently helmed "One Fine Day," with Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney and the Academy Award®-winning "Restoration" starring Robert Downey Jr. Hoffman's other credits include "Soapdish," with Sally Field and Kevin Kline; "Restless Native," "Some Girls" and "Promised Land," which he also wrote.

A native of Idaho, he is one of the founders and a current member of the Board of Trustees for the Idaho Shakespeare Festival in Boise. The festival draws more than 30,000 patrons to summer repertory performances and is currently in the process of building a $3 million amphitheater.
