Hartford Stage artistic director Darko Tresnjak's stages the classic that will officially open May 18 for a run through June 10.

Joining Davis (La Cage aux Folles, The Cherry Orchard, Invention of Love, "The Nanny") are Noble Shropshire (Gonzalo), Bruce Turk (Trinculo), William Patrick Riley (Ferdinand), David Barlow (Sebastian), Michael Spencer-Davis (Stephano), Shirine Babb (Ariel), Sara Topham (Miranda), Joshua Dean (Sailor/Spirit), Jonathan Lincoln Fried (Antonio), Christopher Randolph (King Alonso), Ben Cole (Caliban), Alex Saffer (Francisco/Boatswain), Mark Ford (Sailor/Lord) , Jane Cracovaner (Spirit/Goddess), Jillian Greenberg (Spirit/Goddess) and Annastasia Duffany (Spirit/Goddess).

Here's how Hartford describes The Tempest: "One storm rages on the sea. Another storm rages inside of a man. Will Prospero, the banished Duke of Milan, exact his revenge or forgive his foes? Shakespeare’s magnificent last play is a meditation on family, love, mercy, and—ultimately—the theatre itself. With wonder, imagination and sheer theatricality, this powerful production will take you on a breathtaking journey filled with song, dance, masks and puppetry."

The design team includes Alexander Dodge (scenic design); Fabio Toblini (costume design); Michael Chybowski (lighting design); David Budries and Nathan A. Roberts (sound design and original music); and Joshua Dean (aerial consultant). The stage manager is Mary K. Klinger.
