Public Theater Enlists 200 New Yorkers in a Production of ‘The Tempest’

The Public Theater will put on an original musical adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play, The Tempest from September 6th to 8th.

Free tickets will be distributed on a daily basis at Central Park’s Delacorte Theater.

Broadway Buzz reports that the show “will feature the talents of 200 New Yorkers from all five boroughs, who will join together with professional actors for the three-night civic event.”

These extras hail from five different community organizations: the Children’s Aid Society, DreamYard, Fortune Society, Brownsville Recreation Center and Domestic Workers United.

The idea for this crowdsourced project, an initiative through Public Works, was conceived by director Lear de Bessonet. Composer Todd Almond wrote the lyrics and music.
