Look what the critics are saying about TEMPEST!

"The enchantment begins immediately, with a storm-tossed 
shipwreck made of shouted voices, a haze of fog and a speckled, 
celestial light cast by a giant metal orb. Pocked with holes, 
it’s lit from within, swaying like the wild sea...a beautiful production."
- Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Times

"Coonrod and Swados have a talent for aural storytelling that 
must be experienced firsthand to be believed." 
- Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania

" ...a visual and aural feast, blending bold symbolism, stylized movements, 
athletic dancing, and ethereal-sounding music... 
it will speak cogently to New Yorkers who all too well 
remember the real-life devastations of Hurricane Sandy" 
- Deirdre Donovan, Curtain Up

"Rough magic? Reg E. Cathey has it. 
His long, lined face and gravelly voice suggest effortless 
power and allure. It’s both brilliant and obvious that he 
should play the sorcerer Prospero in Karin Coonrod's 'Tempest'."  
The New Yorker
