The Tempest
Cutting Ball Theater
Nov. 5-28 at EXIT on Taylor, 277 Taylor (at Ellis), S.F. $15-$50; 419-3584 or www.cuttingball.com.
In Cutting Ball's fall opener, director Rob Melrose reimagines Shakespeare's final romance — in many ways the Bard's most modern and elusive work — as a three-person chamber piece. All of Shakespeare's plays have endured a slew of gimmicky interpretations, but The Tempest, with its dreamlike setting and structure, is probably most open to radical reinvention. With Melrose taking a crack at it, you can bet that Cutting Ball's version will be worth a look.
