Friday Funny – The Beatles in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

On April 28, 1964, a few months after they appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, the Beatles performed a spoof of the Mechanicals’ skit from A Midsummer Night’s Dream on the British variety show “Around the Beatles.” Here are the boys celebrating Shakespeare’s 400th birthday, with Paul as Pyramus, John as Thisbe, George as the Moon and Ringo as the Lion.

Don’t you wish you could have seen this one live! Have a great weekend all.
