Mobile Unit Production of The Tempest Releases Photos
The Mobile Unit's production of Shakespeare's The Tempest is set to begin its sit-down at the Public Theater on Monday, April 29, following a three-week tour to correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social service organizations, and community centers. Get a first look at photos from the traveling production below.
The Tempest is described as follows: "Prospero, a powerful magician and the rightful Duke of Milan, has been usurped by her brother and has escaped to a remote and barren island. There, despite the unforgiving landscape, she has tried her best to make a home for her daughter, Miranda. When Prospero conjures a powerful storm to sink her brother's ship, she must decide how to deal with him and his confederates, who have washed ashore. How will she exact her long-awaited revenge? How do you satiate a desire for justice?"
Directed by Laurie Woolery, the cast features Jasai Chase Owens (Ferdinand), Dan Domingues (Antonio), Danaya Esperanza (Ariel), Christopher Ryan Grant (Caliban), Sam Morales (Miranda), Nancy Rodriguez (Gonzalo), Reza Salazar (Sebastian), Myra Lucretia Taylor (Prospero), and JD Webster (Alonso).
The production's creative team includes scenic design by Claire DeLiso, costume design by Wilberth Gonzalez, and music composition by Michelle J. Rodriguez.
