THE BEST VERSION OF THE TEMPEST I HAVE EVER SEEN
 – David MacDowell Blue, The World Through Night-Tinted Glasses

“SHEER MAGIC”
...amps up the play's sense of wonder, and focuses its emotional intensity like a crystal focusing a laser...As Prospero, master actor Jack Stehlin...lights our way to a most startling interpretive choice at the play's end...Shakespeare would weep with joy to see the heart of his most personal work so radiantly revealed."
- Mark Hein, Theatre Ghost

“TRULY UNIQUE”
… will make you consider this play in an all-new light.”
- Sarah A. Spitz, Santa Monica Daily Press

“REFRESHINGLY NEW”
… fascinating and fun!.”
- Elaine L. Mura, LA Splash

“IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND”
… transcends all expectations… so profoundly moving, so exciting and original, that I cannot urge you enough to go see it. If you only make time for one Shakespeare production this year, let it be this one… theatre magic at its finest.”
— Ellen Dostal, Shakespeare in LA


VISUALLY STUNS
— Gil Kaan, Broadwayworld

"YOU WILL BE THRILLED"
BOLD AND MUSCULAR
the most inventive production of The Tempest that I have ever seen…If you love originality, if you love theatricality,
if you love words and action that make the sometimes-difficult language of Shakespeare accessible, then do not miss this production. ”
—  Paul Myrvold’s Theatre Notes

RECOMMENDED! STRIKING AND INDELIBLE...POWERFUL
We are served humor as well as travitas, love with betrayal, hope with unbearable loss...a special spell perfetly befitting an enchanted isle.
—David Maurer, Culture Spot LA

HIGHLY ENCHANTING" 
With adaptor/director Farmanesh-Bocca at the creative helm and a marvelous Stehlin leading a strong cast, The Tempest has been shaken, pureed and creatively messed with to exciting effect... rich and dynamic end-to-end.”
— Evan Henerson, Curtain Up

WOW!... MESMERIZING"
Farmanesh-Bocca takes reinvention to such an excitingly new level, it’s no wonder Tempest Redux is the most buzzed-about Shakespeare show in town.” — Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
