The Public Theater has announced that its Mobile Unit will mount a free three-week tour of Shakespeare's The Tempest this spring, running through all five New York City boroughts April 4-27, and culminating in a three-week engagement at the Public Theater's Shiva Theater April 29-May 19, with opening night set for Friday, May 3.

The complete cast of The Tempest will feature 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 J.D. Webster (Alonso). Laurie Woolery will direct.

Now in its ninth year, the Mobile Unit's free tour brings Shakespeare and other works to audiences who have limited or no access to the arts by visiting correctional facilities, homeless shelters, social service organizations, and other community venues.
