‘Twas a dark and stormy night that cast the King of Naples and his closest advisors upon a lonely shore … but more is afoot here than the shipwrecked nobles know. This isle is not uninhabited: For the past 12 years, Prospero, wizard and the former Duke of Milan, and his daughter Miranda have languished in exile upon the island with only the sprite Ariel and the bitter creature Caliban for company. Think of Prospero as an Elizabethan Petyr Baelish — pulling the other characters like marionettes to fulfill his own ends — for it was he that called up the storm to bring these members of Naples’ court to him, so he may exact revenge and restore his daughter to her rightful position as princess! Perfect for those seeking a lighthearted evening at the theater, Shakespeare’s The Tempest is an effortlessly written comedy from late in The Bard’s career, and centers on themes of forgiveness and redemption. $10-25, 8pm Fri-Sat, 3pm Sun, The Classic Theatre of San Antonio, 1924 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 589-8450,
