Shakespeare’s magic-filled exploration of the politics of colonialism erupts with power and relevance in this one-man spectacle. The play draws startling parallels between Shakespeare’s final work and the post-colonial “New World.” Prospero, rightful Duke of Milan, shipwrecks his conniving brother by means of a magical storm. As the befuddled travelers encounter the ephemeral Ariel, the earthy Caliban, and Prospero’s sheltered daughter Miranda, old rivalries and new romances take root. In another time and place, one man’s voyage from Cuba to the U.S. begins to echo the events and politics of Shakespeare’s play. As Cuban author, Fernandez Retamar remarked, “What is our history, what is our culture, if not the history and culture of Caliban?”
Join everyone’s favorite madcap aunt, Mame Dennis (played by everyone’s favorite madcap comic genius, Matthew McGee) in the Broadway blockbuster that will have you tapping your toes and humming its hit parade score. Mame’s fabulous martini-fueled life in New York is interrupted by the arrival of her orphaned nephew, Patrick. Through her unconventional outlook and with a host of colorful and beloved characters, Auntie Mame creates a charmed world of adventure for Patrick. Through personal trials and against the larger backdrop of a changing world, Patrick’s Auntie Mame teaches us valuable lessons about the power of joy and fantasy in the face of life’s darkest moments.
