Production History

Macbeth  | Open: 06/01/13 Close: 06/15/13
Following a January workshop and 6 April performances at schools and professional venues in Istanbul, the Tempest Ladies return to NYC with their take on the classic Scottish Play. Directed by Lindsay Tanner, this dark tale is told from the perspective of five mysterious witches (Stella Berg, Stacey Bone-Gleason, Laura Borgwardt, Julia Giolzetti, and Holly Hart), who portray more than twenty-five characters--though no one stays in the same role for long: the actors seamlessly change characters from scene to scene.


In Macbeth, the legendary Scottish thane and his powerful wife murder their way to the top, only to later suffer the devastating consequences. More complexity is added to the story by having women portray both genders: wives, warriors, children, and kings. Using instruments, fabric, song, movement, and imagination, the audience is fully immersed and incorporated into the experience. Macbeth is 90 minutes with no intermission.

The Tempest  | Open: 06/02/11 Close: 06/02/11
On June 2nd, six classically trained women will tackle all of the roles in Shakespeare's final masterpiece, often switching parts mid-scene. The Tempest Ladies, LLC (Stella Berg, Laura Borgwardt, Julia Giolzetti, Holly Hart, Laura Bess Jernigan, and Jana Stambaugh) was created by a group of friends studying at Shakespeare's Globe in London. After a well-received run at the Edinburgh Fringe, where the show was called "spellbinding" and "hugely inventive and wonderfully realized", Shakespeare's tale of shipwrecked kings, spirits, lovers, and clowns comes to the Players Theatre for one night only. A physically demanding, playful, and accessible production, The Tempest is not to be missed. This production is cut to 90 minutes without an intermission and is family-friendly. After our second performance, we will be inviting the audience to join us for a celebration and reception. The Tempest Ladies are also developing an educational aspect, and hope to tour their show to schools around the city.
