About this show

Target Margin Theater's 20th Anniversary production of The Tempest brings the company back to its Shakespearean roots with a rich and strange production performed by members of the troupe that will challenge perceived notions of performing Shakespeare. For twenty years Target Margin Theater has made hand-crafted magic in plain sight. TMT's production of Titus Andronicus splashed buckets of blood onto the Lower East Side and its mark can still be seen. Now they have dreamed up a Tempest brought to life in an old-fashioned theater, from a rich and strange past they never knew, for a future they want to create. An aging master magician clumsily tries to control the beautiful fiery and silly spirits on his little island, far from the main stream of his culture. The spell is still gorgeous, but fading. Or is it a brave new beginning?
