The Tempest is upon us. (Has any play ever been more appropriately named?) Director Timothy Douglas landed in L.A., cast the play, and–behold!–rehearsals are abloom.
Designer Frederica Nascimento’s set seduces: this is ’20s Florida, bathed in a torrid, tropical feel. The scenery is more than matched by Angela Calin’s costumes, at once sultry and bold.
Enter Prospero! Deborah Strang, who thrilled us all last season in Tartuffe and Come Back, Little Sheba rises to the very top of her game in a brave performance of peerless range. Power broker? Mother of courage? Yes, that, and so much more: Deborah’s is a once-in-a-lifetime role whose unfolding-happening as we speak-takes our very breath away. It’s the perfect prelude to a revolutionary season. Subscribe today and let us give you great seats for our best rep year ever, or buy your seats to this terrific Tempest
