By WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
DIRECTED BY SAM MENDES

Season Two of The Bridge Project continues with The Tempest officially opening on Thursday, February 25th at the BAM Harvey Theater.

Following a critically acclaimed inaugural year, theater and Academy Award-winning film director Sam Mendes again directs a transatlantic company of actors for the second season of The Bridge Project, a unique three-year series of co-productions by BAM, The Old Vic, and Neal Street devoted to producing large-scale, classical theater for international audiences.

The Bridge Project again begins its international journey in New York, with As You Like It & The Tempest at the BAM Harvey Theater. It will then embark on an international tour visiting Asia and Europe before opening in London at The Old Vic in June 2010.

Year two features the intriguing double-bill pairing of Shakespeare’s witty pastoral comedy As You Like It and his late masterpiece The Tempest with another stellar British/American cast that includes Christian Camargo as Orlando and Ariel in As You Like It and The Tempest; Stephen Dillane as Jaques and Prospero; Ron Cephas Jones as Charles the Wrestler and Caliban; Alvin Epstein as Adam and Gonzalo; Juliet Rylance as Rosalind and Miranda; and Thomas Sadoski as Touchstone and Stephano; and Michelle Beck as Celia and Ceres.  Claire Béjanin is the international tour producer for The Bridge Project.
