If you have not yet attended one of the outdoor performances of "The Tempest" in Carroll Park this summer, you owe it to yourself to grab a blanket or a chair and to catch it before its run ends on June 26.
For the past seven years, award-winning theatre company Smith Street Stage has brought Shakespeare to Carroll Park to the delight of everyone in the community. Previous productions include Romeo and Juliet, Cesar, Twelfth Night and Henry IV. Each has been masterfully acted, visually stunning and uses the park as a beautiful backdrop.
This summer, the Brooklyn-based theater company is performing Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', "a darkly comic story of magic, romance, revenge and forgiveness."
The cast includes a charming Raquel Chavez as Miranda, Kate Ross as Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan, and Peter Molesworth as his spirit servant.
Beth Ann Hopkins superbly directs the talented cast and makes full use of Carroll Park as a tropical, magical island.
The outdoor performances are absolutely free and are family-friendly. The show runs through 26, excluding Mondays and Tuesdays. All performances start at 7:30pm.
