Refreshing, Quirky, Great singing, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you would enjoy a fresh version of the Bard's play that sticks closely to the script but updates the set and characters. Fine use of space.

Don't see it if you expect an original presentation or an elaborate staging - here the actors and young chorus bring the story alive on a nearly bare stage.

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

Quirky, Entertaining, Great singing, Delightful, Ambitious

See it if You want to see a truly community theatre play w/actors of all ages, genders, physical abilities & proficiency w/Shakespeare.

Don't see it if You want a cast that's equally adept at Shakespearean verse. You prefer plays w/bigger production values. You don't want to trek to Brooklyn Read more

Great writing, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Delightful

See it if you enjoy a play with great actors ;kudos to Griffin Sharps as Caliban;great singing, wonderful kids in the chorus:a novelty in a Skspr play

Don't see it if you feel the set is too bare even if Skspr would have never used any scenery to depict the island. Read more

Good prospero and caliban, Confused interpretation

See it if You love Shakespeare in any way shape or form, like community theater and don't mind acting ability that runs the gamut from fair to good.

Don't see it if you'd mind changes to the sex of Shakespeare's characters, females in place of male characters and other switches as well. Read more

Critic Reviews (1)

Theatre is Easy
July 23rd, 2019

"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."
