One of Shakespeare's greatest works, The Tempest is brought to life in a brand-new way by the Suitcase Shakespeare Company using puppetry, mask, movement and music. It's a magical story about the transformative power of forgiveness and the bond between parent and child. It follows the adventures of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle where fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance abound. A shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, and the plot thickens when his beloved daughter falls for the enemy's son. Learn More

If Goldstar had half stars, I'd probably go with a 3.5. I feel like there's a difference between 3.5 and 4 (and 3 and 3.5). Overall - I get the story, and thought it was for the most part well written. The 2 brothers were very believable, especially in today's world where we have so many boomerang children going back home to their parents. For the most part, the 2 men were very good actors, though they devolved into "cheese" at some points, but always managed to get away from it quickly. The girlfriend...eh. The actress who played her was the worst part of the show by far, and the storyline she was given didn't help to hide her poor acting skills. The next door neighbor was pointless other than providing comic relief and he could really start to grate on your nerves (though the actor playing him was quite good) I thought the Joyce character was very well acted and her storyline was really relevant and something a lot of people can relate to - a friend who might be a potential love interest. Overall, I thought this show had real potential, but fell short in some areas - I'm still glad I went though. This is a new company, and I plan on seeing other performances from them in the future.
