"for another summer Leda Hoffman returns to Door Shakespeare to direct The Tempest with a sharp eye towards uncovering each character's human qualities, whether actually human or mystical, so her choices clarify the production's humor, poetry and story and a keen humanity shines from within each cast member."
"Door Shakespeare delivers an effortless, enchanting, and magical Tempest, timelessly powerful in the telling."

"Does such a preternatural ability to alter events corrupt one's soul? If one were able to not only shape history but also know its outcome in advance, would there still be any relish in living? And will what one creates or mars ultimately even matter, after one is dead? Such questions haunt every artist and this play, reminding us that one long-standing way to read "The Tempest" is as Shakespeare's retrospective meditation on his own career as playwright."
