Director, Rough Magic

Director. (2011). Rough Magic. University of Washington: Seattle, WA.

The UW School of Drama presents Rough Magic, by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Nov. 30-Dec. 11 in the Jones Playhouse. Rough Magic reminds us of action movies, sci-fi thrillers, and comic book heroes all at once—with a  healthy dash of Shakespeare.

The bard comes along in the form of characters from The Tempest, like Caliban, who comes to New York in search of a raven-haired dramaturg and her 17-year-old lifeguard sidekick. These three and Tisiphone (a Fury from ancient Greece) go up against Prospero and his evil offspring in a fight to save magic and Manhattan.
