About the event
THE NEW GROSS-OUT ADAPTATION OF THE TEMPEST FROM THE MAKER OF THE TOXIC AVENGER
Legendary director Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th anniversary and his 50th year making movies, by taking on Big Pharma, addiction, and the intolerance of social media in #SHAKESPEARESS##TSTORM.
This irreverent musical adaptation of THE TEMPEST is ripe with bawdy couplets, Hieronymus Boschian images of excess, and unrefined iambic pentameter.˝ #SHAKESPEARESS##TSTORM marks the most ambitious project in Troma’s 45-year history.
Working with one of Hollywood’s best special effects companies, Troma brings a whole new experience to their stylized brand. Having a bigger budget also brought about larger-scale on-location filming in Albania (a first for narrative feature films in the country) as well as a celestial orchestral score from Portugal and a little help from the Bard.
Shakespeare has never been this raw and unfiltered.
