R.Evolución Latina and Pregones/Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre collaborated for a second year to bring audiences a new vision of William Shakespeare’s Tempest. This unique take on one Shakespeare’s final works was the result of a developmental process that nurtured the essence of our adult training program students.
For 4 performances in June Shakespeare’s heightened language met the rhythms of Latinx cultures, to tell this story’s comedy, drama, betrayal, and magic! Students has the opportunity to perform for full houses and awaken the hearts of the audience as they experienced the words, movement, music and talents of the 21 performers who never left the stage.
What people said after leaving the theatre…
“I don’t think I’ve ever been so glued to the edge of my seat during a Shakespeare production
The music was gorgeous, the movement was challenging and mesmerizing to watch, the design was majestic, and each performance was riveting. The ensemble was great at balancing the magic, hypnotism, and comedy of the piece.” -Christin Eve Cato
“I’m still shaking from the show. I didn’t want it to end: all those voices, colors, diversity from all parts of the world, and all that music!!! So much beauty. I didn’t want to leave. – Igor Correa Wetter
Awake, dear heart, awake!
