On 7 pm Saturday, August 11 Cincinnati Shakespeare will present a free performance of Shakespeare’s play The Tempest outdoors at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center at 3711 Clifton Avenue. Not that it needs more publicity, but the Shakespeare play is about to get more publicity, for Bob Dylan recently chose to name his new release Tempest. When asked if a nod to Shakespeare was involved, Dylan insisted that was not the case, for after all his title lacked the word “The.” Methinks that won’t be the end of the discussion, however–and among other things if you attend this event you’ll have a refresher course on Shakespeare so you can barrel ahead into whether or not you think the new Dylan title owes something to the bard.
More motivation: free ice cream will served that was provided by UDF. The event is in celebration of Community Arts Centers Day, and this is a great opportunity to catch up on what Clifton Cultural Arts Center is up to.
