Political, Selective, Physical, Smart

See it if you’d like a physical rendering of the Bard’s great farewell to theater that has points to make—non-didactically—about colonialism.

Don't see it if “The Tempest” for you is not “The Tempest” unless Prospero gets to deliver his full valedictory speeches. Read more

Good storm choreography, Tempest in a bathtub

See it if You like Shakespeare in any shape or form & want to support small companies & inexperienced actors. Amusing version, but not expertly done.

Don't see it if you dislike small companies, & want your Shakespeare fully baked, expertly cast & w 16th century music, not rock & popular music. Read more

Refreshing, Entertaining, Confusing, Funny

See it if you want to be immersed in a different "Tempest",performed by passionate young actors on a minimalist stage, at the sound of grt rock music.

Don't see it if If you are not familiar with Shakespeare's Tempest, you will not be able to understand this version,especially at the very beginning. Read more

Indulgent, Confusing, Delightful, Funny, Entertaining

Funny, Entertaining

Entertaining, Great acting, Clever, Absorbing

See it if If you like a reworking of Shakespeare with contemporary music thrown in. You like decent acting.
