Added DiffLines:

* The 2014 production at the Stratford Festival made the above scene even funnier, given that Lysander was being played by a woman. After Puck asks Oberon "Did you not tell me I should know the man...?", the actor playing Oberon gave Puck an aside glance, as if to say, 'I trusted you to be able to tell, Athenian garments or not, that that was not a man you found'.

Added DiffLines:

** One Shakespeare By the Sea production does one better by having Oberon, upon hearing the mortals approach, dramatically jump-dive behind a prop set, only to sit up and say: [[RememberedICouldFly "I am invisible,"]] then sit normally to overhear their conference.

* In the 2013 production at the Globe Theatre: Puck's pointing out that Oberon's instructions weren't clear enough ("Did not you tell me I should know the man by the Athenian garment be had on?"), and thus that the entire mess is ''his'' fault, was met by a subdued "Oh yeah."
