About this show

Shakespeare's classic tale of the power of forgiveness is made accessible once again by transporting the story to Manhattan with it's midtown power brokers and modern day Lower East Side Club Scene. The time is 1981. Prospero, CEO of Milan Enterprises is overthrown in a hostile takeover and disappears into the Lower East Side. Twenty years later, Milan enterprises is touring the Lower East Side looking to develop when their tour bus crashes, throwing the occupants from Houston to East Broadway. Mustering the cultural energy and spiritual magic that is unique to this area, Prospero assembles his troops for one final showdown with the people who banished him so many years ago. The Tempest is directed by Don Williams. There is no performance on Friday, August 10.
