“…a strong lustrous tone and an amiably regal presence on stage.” --- The New York Times


A storm at sea, a shipwreck, a desert island, a magician, a monster, a spirit of the air, and a poignant tale of first love: these elements come together in one of Shakespeare’s greatest late plays, The Tempest. Who better to take us on this theatrical voyage than the Actors from the London Stage? After truly remarkable productions (and a week of workshops with students and community members) of Midsummer Night’s Dream and King Lear, we anxiously await a return visit from the five versatile actors who pare Shakespeare down to its luminous essence: language, story, and character. Tempest, which is often thought of as Shakespeare’s farewell to the stage, is a beautiful play, and it will be a magical and poignant production to experience with the actors right there in front of us in the FlynnSpace.
