This celebratory event will be the culmination of the company’s California Bridge Tour, a yearlong statewide touring production of California: The Tempest and their final performances with a breathtaking view of downtown Los Angeles.

In California: The Tempest, “What’s past is prologue,” as playwright Alison Carey’s adaptation of The Tempest meets California’s challenges head-on in this traveling experience that conjures love, disaster, revenge, forgiveness & music (all that you would expect from Shakespeare!); mixed with earthquakes, drought, overdevelopment, food equity, state politics, fracking and immigration policy (all that you would expect from California!) as Prosper, her daughter Minerva, her servant Caliban and Californians from across the state yearn to find the commonality in our diversity and imagine a healthy and inclusive future for California. Don’t miss this very special event.
