Venue Details

Be prepared: the seating is very tight and the tent itself has no restrooms. You must use the ones in the Boman Pavilion which weren't meant to serve an audience this large. The lines for both the men's and women's rooms were very long at intermission. If you have to go, go fast, or you'll wait.

Loved the play, very much amusing. Old Shakespeare with twist of magic, magic, and more magic!

The play was a bit slow at first, then picked up the page and was enjoyable. The tent is smaller outside than i was expecting, but that makes for better viewing. But you will feel the temperature outside while you're inside. I was cold!

Imaginative and unique. Yes, some of the Shakespeare was lost in translation. So if you are a "Tempest" purist, you might want to pass. For me, however, the non-Shakespearean elements--Tom Waits songs, live magic and the Pilobolus take on monster...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: The Smith Center for the Performing Arts

From the very beginning, The Smith Center was envisioned as a world-class performing arts center that would develop and present the best and brightest in a broad range of first-rate programming and unite the residents of our community.

Before ground had even been broken in Symphony Park, The Smith Center was projected to make history with this new cultural complex in Southern Nevada; it would enable Southern Nevada to take its place on an international stage, celebrating artistic excellence, education and culture from around the world.

The great ambition to develop a nationally renowned performing arts center urged The Smith Center’s design team to visit venues across North America and Europe in 2007 in order to study some of the world’s finest opera houses, concert halls and performance venues. After they toured multiple historic venues including Palais Garnier in Paris, the Musikverein in Vienna and La Scala in Milan, they came together to collaborate their findings and design The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
