Revenge can cause quite a commotion. Full of power and poetry, Shakespeare’s final play is a magical tale of shipwrecks and storms, of justice and mercy, and, ultimately, life and art. This funny, imaginative and hauntingly beautiful work brings Red Bull Theater back to its founding roots with Shakespearean romance at its pinnacle. On a remote and mysterious island, Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, conjures up a storm and a violent shipwreck to trap his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso on the island. And thus begins his plot to restore his beloved daughter Miranda to her rightful place, using his powerful Art. With spirits, monsters, and drunken fools, Shakespeare weaves a powerful spell of reconciliation. 

“This magical story of old endings and new beginnings is the perfect way to celebrate Red Bull Theater's two decades of innovative classical theater! I couldn’t be more thrilled to share Shakespeare’s The Tempest with this phenomenal cast and music for one night only on April 29th. If you are new to Red Bull, it’s the perfect way to experience how amazing NYC’s finest actors can cast a magical theatrical spell in one evening with one of the world’s greatest plays. If you are familiar with Red Bull and our origins with Shakespeare’s great romance Pericles, it’s a chance to revisit some familiar faces and new ones in a vivid take on Shakespeare’s most mature and magical play about service and love, revenge and forgiveness – not to mention live music featuring Elliot Goldenthal’s beautiful score, and great singing performances from Reeve Carney and a special cameo Goddess visitation by, who better? Lillias White! Join us!” said founder and artistic director Jesse Berger.
