In this rollicking starship musical, loosely based on The Tempest, Mad Scientist Doctor Prospero is banished into hyperspace with his infant daughter Miranda and lands on the uncharted Planet D’Illyria. Featuring rock-and-roll hits of the 50s and 60s, a B-movie sci-fi setting, and dialogue borrowed from the greatest plays ever written, Return to the Forbidden Planet will have you dancing in your seat and laughing nonstop at this out-of-this-world production. “Shakespeare’s lost rock and roll masterpiece” is the winner of the 1990 Olivier Award for Best Musical.
