I may need to check this one out–I’ve seen a movie version plus a modern adaptation of the work, but I’ve never seen the classic play on stage. If you’re not familiar with it, here’s the quick summary: “Shipwrecked after a violent storm, little do the survivors know that they have landed on an enchanted isle controlled by Prospero, the magician and full of sprites and other extraordinary creatures. Prospero’s magic can do many things, but will it mend a family feud and set Ariel and Caliban free? Come and see what fantastical events will be.”
If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats. Most recently, I sat in the top row of the balcony for A Christmas Carol, and it was an excellent view. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission was worth every calorie. Yum.
Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets:
- Thursday, January 3, is a general-admission preview night, and all tickets are $15 each. If you’re picky about where you sit, get there early, as it’s first-come, first-seated.
- Check AtlanTIX for discount tickets; you’ll get the best deals preview night + on Thursdays & Sundays during the run.
FYI re: parking: They’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so your best bet is to park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.
The New American Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 404-879-5299.
