The Villager covers TEMPEST 3 + WHAT TAMMY NEEDS TO KNOW... teaser


Trav S.D. recently covered TEMPEST 3 in an article for The Villager titled: 

"A Tempest Trilogy Galvanized by Sandy's Tide."

Here are some of our favorite quotes:
 "In these times of multiple daily apocalypses (environmental, biological, socio-political), there are an infinite number of possible human responses... But there is an older, more calming reaction we can have in the face of crisis: we can exorcise the bad demons through art. That would appear to be the tack La MaMa is taking this season with its trilogy of shows collectively branded “Tempest 3: The Tide is Rising.”
"The current version is a faithful interpretation of the play, with Swados’ eclectic score ranging from the avant-garde to the blues, and Koonrod making full use of the height, depth and breadth of the cavernous Ellen Stewart Theatre... Cathey’s Prospero was one of the most moving Shakespeare performances this writer has seen, and Coonrod’s two-hour production moved at such a clip, with such constant invention and such clarity of storytelling, I never regretted a minute of it. (How often can you say that?)"







and we have our first teaser for:
