Audience Testimonials

“Dear Friends, I saw your Tempest last Saturday and got blown away. Then I got blown back with my family to see it Sunday. Your conception and execution was absolutely magnificent.” – David Randolph, audience member

“The acting, the pageantry, the setting – it was inspired. To me, the Bulb will always be Prospero’s island from now on.” – Evelyn Loughran, audience member
