Arriving directly from two sold-out runs in Las Vegas and Boston, Shakespeare's “The Tempest,” adapted and directed by Aaron Posner and Teller, opens the 2014-15 season at South Coast Repertory on Friday, Aug. 29 to Saturday, Sept. 28, on the Segerstrom Stage.
The stage transformed into a travelling tent show (picture a shipwrecked magic show) is “The Tempest” unlike any other, with haunting ballads by Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, the magic by Teller and movement by Matt Kent of the dance troupe Pilobolus.
Tickets start at $25. Discounts are available for full-time students, patrons 25 years of age and under, fulltime educators, seniors and groups of 10 or more.
Upcoming Productions: The Tempest, Aug. 29-Sept. 28; Venus in Fur, Oct. 5-26; Zealot, Oct. 17-Nov. 16; Charlotte's Web, Nov. 7-23; and A Christmas Carol (the 35th Anniversary), Nov. 28-Dec. 27.
Tickets can be purchased for the exclusive run online at scr.org, by phone at 714.708.5555, or by visiting the Box Office at 655 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa.
'Kelly & Cat' Screening
The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Jen McGowan. The film's synopsis: a punk-rocker turned suburban mom, Kelly, who is nostalgic for a life she can no longer have and not sure of the future. Seventeen-year-old Cal is frustrated at his lack of control over the hand he's been dealt. The two strike up an unlikely friendship, and it urns out to be the perfect spark needed to thrust them both back to life.
The screening is free to OC Film Society members and you can be put on a waiting list to join here, too.
Lido Live Theater is at 3459 Via Lido in Newport Beach.
