The Public Theater's civically ambitious Public Works program, which collaborates with multiple New York communities to create large-scale theater, returns to the Delacorte with Benjamin Velez's musical adaptation of Shakespeare's late romance, whose story elements include a sorcerer’s revenge, young lovers, a shipwreck, a monster and a fairy slave. Public Works chief Laurie Woolery directs the production, and Tiffany Rea-Fisher choreographs. Professional actors—led by Hamilton's Renée Elise Goldsberry as Prospero, plus Jo Lampert, Theo Stockman, Joel Perez and Anthony Chatmon II—lead an army of amateurs from all five boroughs.
