THE TEMPEST

Genre: Classical
William Shakespeare, Directed by John Basil

American Globe Theatre, Times Square's longest-running, Off-Off-Broadway theatre, presents Shakespeare's farewell to the stage. It is a play of enduring enchantment and one of the richest treasures to be found in drama. Marooned on an isle, a great but embittered magician prepares to take vengeance on those who have wronged him, only to learn the nature of compassion and forgiveness. The Tempest is the culmination of Shakespeare's unequalled creative powers

John Basil, published author of Will Power: How to Act Shakespeare in 21 Days, directs the main stage show of American Globe Theatre which "...continues its tradition of presenting impressive, incredible and innovative revivals of Shakespearean plays." OOBR
