Ambitious, Edgy, Well staged, Intelligent, Slow

See it if Streamlined, inclusive & gender neutral this Tempest emphasizes the rustic comedy/Caliban section over the aging, circumspect Prospero

Don't see it if Text & vocals take a back seat to Palmer's busy, showy staging despite non-existent set Fine principals but Cuskern's Prospero carries show

Smart, Clear arc, Some strong performances, Shoestring production

See it if you love the play & would like to see a fairly complete version.

Don't see it if you are looking for a blockbuster production. Read more

"Not sufficiently gripping or consistently crystal-clear...What does stand out about this production, though, is the Gallery Players' vibrant commitment to inclusive casting...This 'Tempest' asks us to share Miranda's vision of a world where those differences no longer alienate us."
