Aside from being a decent writer, William Shakespeare was also one of the world's finest technical-support representatives, talking confounded quill-pen users through their woes in impeccable iambic pentameter. Take in his audience-enchanting legacy with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two tickets to Theatre by the Bay's production of Shakespeare's The Tempest at Georgian Theatre (up to a $50 value). Choose from the following dates:
• Monday, July 4, at 8 p.m.
• Tuesday, July 5, at 8 p.m.
• Monday, July 11, at 8 p.m.
• Tuesday, July 12, at 8 p.m.
Theatre by the Bay sets audiences alight with world-class theatrical talent and casual, community-friendly spectacles. With seating for up to 427 on its main level, the freshly renovated Georgian Theatre's intricate proscenium, sizeable stage, and aria-scented air constitute an ideal canvas for director Brett Christopher's interpretation of the Bard's essential comedy about magic, deceit, and romance on a spirit-enchanted island. While the beastly Caliban romps about the scenery seeking respect, attendees will take pride in the fact that their punctuality paid off: with open seating, a general-admission ticket allows audience members to take any open seat in the house. Watch for the special interplay between actor Robert Joy of CSI: NY fame in the role of Prospero, and his real-life daughter Ruby Joy in the role of Miranda. For optimal seating options and first dibs on programs, arrive at least 30 minutes prior to start time.
As Theatre by the Bay celebrates its 10-year anniversary, it also celebrates a longstanding commitment to the community by encouraging casual attire and welcoming children to its productions. As a registered nonprofit organization, Theatre by the Bay relies on the kindness of satisfied audiences and the enchanted dust of agreeable pixies to bring its spectacles to the stage.
