A Winter's Tale,
A woman's statue coming to life (I've forgotten if that's Cymbeline or A Winter's Tale) had resonances that simply do not apply today. .
as I recall.
I also have dim memories of an old Poul Anderson novel set in an alternate universe in which all of Shakespeare's plays were historically accurate. Bohemia has a coast, there were clocks in ancient Rome, Prospero and Miranda are real people, etc. I think the title was A Midsummer Tempest.
And I still have fond memories of a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream
that was set in a 1950's high school, complete with period music.
"Why must I be a teenager in love?" actually fit the plot rather well!
