Have you ever been trapped on a strange island with weird people who may be monsters? Has a wizened old man conjured a violent storm to punish you? Were there songs involved? If you answered yes to these questions, then you might be a character from Shakespeare. Or, if the storm is a real Shit Storm, maybe you’re a character from the wonderful land of Troma!
Lloyd Kaufman, co-founder of TROMA, writer, director, producer, creative genius, an uncle to the world of weird, brought the world Shakespeare’s Shitstorm , a wild reimagining of the Bard’s classic play. Kaufman directed, co-wrote (with Gabriel Friedman and Brandon Bassham) and stars as Prospero.
This brash, weird retelling of The Tempest sees Prospero luring a ship full of pharmaceutical executives to Tromaville to punish them for their bad behavior.
It is full-on, off the rails, brain on fire levels of bonkers Troma goodness and you need it in your life. You need it, most of all, on a big, big screen in a theater surrounded by other weirdos cheering for insanity. And –
You need to see it with Lloyd Kaufman (yeah, that’s right, Lloyd Motherfucking Kaufman) in attendance to answer your questions after the show.
