About this show

Artistic Director Tony Simotes and Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis team up to re-envision Shakespeare's The Tempest. Filled with moving, funny and enchanting moments, the underpinnings in this fantastical world, much like our own, are steeped in mystery, darkness and the unknown. Simotes' fresh and provocative take, set in the 1940s, aligns the magic and mystery of the island with the often tumultuous relationships between family -- with a twist -- Ms. Dukakis plays Duke Prospero as a woman. Love, forgiveness and irreverence reign supreme in this, Shakespeare's ultimate statement on humanity.
