Superheroes On A Submarine: A New Take On Shakespeare

Last week as Shakespeare fans around the world celebrated his 450th birthday, Durham's Manbites Dog Theater opened a modern adaptation of his last masterpiece, The Tempest. 

Spirits to Enforce by Mickle Maher is a quirky show about 12 superheroes on a submarine who are conducting a telefundraiser to put on a production of The Tempest. Host Frank Stasio talks with actors Jon Haas and Jessica Flemming and director Jeff Storer.

Here's a preview:
