Subject:        The Tempest Cuban Style

"In this new version, which incorporates Afro-Cuban music, dance, mask,
physical theatre, a whole ship full of refugees from other Shakespeare
plays (Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, Shylock) are marooned along with Prospero
and Miranda. There they meet the Yoruban deities who inhabit the
island..."
