Daniel Davis Prosperos at Hartford Stage

Daniel Davis
Tony Award nominee Daniel Davis, best known for his recent NYC roles in Classic Stage’s The Cherry Orchard, Lincoln Center’s The Invention of Love, and the 2004 Broadway revival of La Cage aux Folles, as well as six seasons as Niles the butler on TV’s “The Nanny, will make his Hartford Stage debut as Prospero in Shakespeare's The Tempest, playing May 10-June 10.

The play is the first selected by Hartford Stage's new Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak, who will direct.

One stormrages 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 last play is a meditation on family, love, mercy,and—ultimately—the theatre itself.  The production is a journey filled with song, dance, masks and puppetry.

The Tempest cast features 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 (KingAlonso), Ben Cole (Caliban), Alex Saffer  (Francisco/Boatswain), MarkFord (Sailor/Lord) , Jane Cracovaner  (Spirit/Goddess),  JillianGreenberg (Spirit/Goddess),and  Annastasia Duffany (Spirit/Goddess). 

The creative 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; Joshua Dean, aerial consultant.
