The Tempest


Swept away by love and magic.

Shakespeare’s classic comedy—the only play he set in the New World—is filled with young love, dazzling magic, cross-cultural strife, and ultimately forgiveness. In Avant Bard’s offbeat update, The Tempest tells a story of refugees and exiles that asks, “How can we all get along on this island Earth?” Starring Christopher Henley as Prospero.
