Tanglewood on Parade - Shakespeare and Company - Olympia and Apollo Dukakis and Tony Simotes

Aug 7, 2012

Artistic Director Tony Simotes and Academy Award-winning actress Olympia Dukakis team up to re-envision Shakespeare's The Tempest at Shakespeare & Co. in Lenox. Filled with moving, funny and enchanting moments, the underpinnings in this fantastical world, much like our own, are steeped in mystery, darkness and the unknown. Simotes' take, set in the 1940s, aligns the magic and mystery of the island with the often tumultuous relationships between family — with a twist — Ms. Dukakis plays Prospero as a woman (Prospera) - and speaking of family, Olympia’s brother, Apollo, also stars in the production.
