The award-winning theatre company Smith Street Stage returns to Brooklyn this summer for its 7th year of outdoor Shakespeare in Carroll Park. This year’s production is a gender-bent twist on The Tempest, starring Kate Ross as Prospero. As The Tempest begins, the magician Prospero sends out a storm to shipwreck the traitorous men who once stole her throne and exiled her to a desolate island. When the island’s mysteries entrap and confound the men, Prospero wreaks her revenge. Meanwhile, her daughter Miranda discovers the “brave new world” of true love. The Tempest is a world of enchantment and storytelling not to be missed.
