Dirty Politics, Worse Weather 

Given the weather in this city, it’s almost reasonable to assume that sorcery could be involved. Snow, floods, thunderstorms, and that’s just the past month. If you’re getting suspicious, you might want to do some research into the career of Prospero. In Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Prospero conjures a massive storm to shipwreck his enemies on the island where he himself was marooned after said enemies usurped his throne in Milan. What follows is a tale of love, intrigue, dirty politics and bad weather — which sounds a lot like home (minus the tropical scenery). It all unravels onstage at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (April 11 through 19) at the St. Louis Community College-Meramec theatre (11333 Big Bend Road; 314-984-7562). The show (with a script edited by Barbara Mowat and Paul Werstine) is directed by Michelle Rebollo and designed by Darren Thompson, and admission is free. The weather-wise will want to be there for the end, when the rethroned Prospero commands that we’re all to be blessed with calmer seas.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 10. Continues through April 19, 2008
