I find it annoying that many Americans (especially) refer to A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Midsummer. Are they really so short of time that they can’t give the play its full title?

I think we say “Midsummer’s”, to boot!

Though relatively common in English theatrical circles to refer to it as “Dream” ? (as in “Brook’s Dream” etc)

Exactly. The play is called "The Spanish Tragedy, or Hieronimo is Mad Again" and THE PUBLIC WON'T ACKNOWLEDGE IT.
