Theater 2020 Does “Family Friendly” Adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Tempest”

David Fuller (photo), Brooklyn Heights resident and, with his wife Judith Jarosz, co-Artistic Producing Director of the award winning Theater 2020, has done a 75 minute “family friendly” adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

A new 75-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy about revenge, redemption and forgiveness. Prospero, the deposed Duke of Milan, has been marooned on an isle with his daughter, Miranda, in a coup precipitated by his traitorous brother Antonio and the wily Queen of Naples. But Prospero is a wizard, on a par with Hogwarts’ Dumbledore, and he conjures a storm to bring his enemies to judgement on this very isle of wonder and enchantment. His enemies are put through trials, his daughter becomes engaged, his island subjects are freed, and Prospero finds the true power of the most magical human gift, Love.

The show, with Jarosz directing and Fuller in the cast as Prospero, will run at the ART New York performance space at 138 South Oxford Street, near the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center 2, 3, 4, 5, N & R subway stop. Performances will start at 7:30 PM Friday through Sunday June 14-16 and June 21-23, and Thursday and Friday, June 27 and 28. You may buy tickets here.

There will be two FREE outdoor performances starting at 5:30 PM on Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30 at the Granite Prospect on Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park.
