With a posthumous following that rivals the likes of Michael Jackson and many other great entertainers, Shakespeare should have no trouble stirring up a crowd for this interactive reading of The Tempest. Music City’s commoners are invited to step out from the sidelines and into the limelight, taking on the personas of monarchs, lovers and Shakespearean archetypes alike. If, however, the prospect of fame is too much to handle, you’re in luck — every performance needs an audience and event-goers are just as welcome to look on as they are to partake in the reading. The play, recently adapted by Julie Taymor into a film starring Dame Helen Mirren and funnyman Russell Brand, follows the dethroned magician Prospero, applying supernatural conventions to a story already packed with political intrigue. The series will continue with next month’s reading of Cymbeline.
