The Classical Theatre of Harlem latest’s production, The Tempest, has an uncanny knack for timing. The play remixes the classic Shakespearean opus and references the island of Hispaniola as Prospero’s magical island. Hispaniola, which is home to both the Dominican Republic and Haiti, is currently undergoing some major drama of its own. The Tempest’s highlighting of the dynamics of freedom and captivity, imprisonment and rebellion, authority and tyranny seems eerily prescient right about now.
The Tempest begins its limited run this weekend at the Richard Rodgers Amphitheater at Marcus Garvey Park and is free and open to the public. See you there…
