A CLASSIC REINVIGORATED
May 31 to July 8, 2018
Opening/press night: Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 7:30 pm.
Shakespeare’s farewell play, the only work he set in the New World, is filled with dazzling magic, young love, cross-cultural strife, and ultimately forgiveness. Christopher Henley, fresh off rave reviews as Lear’s Fool, plays the sorcerer Prospero in a reinvigoration of this classic dark comedy. In Avant Bard’s offbeat update, The Tempest tells a story of colonials and refugees that asks, “How can we all get along on this island Earth?”
