Exclusive: Helen Mirren Sweeps Us Away in Tempest Performance

Helen Mirren

Britain’s greatest actors perform the Bard’s classics during the limited U.S. theatrical debut of The Shakespeare Show.

For one night only, U.S. theater lovers can witness a celebration of William Shakespeare's best works by Britain's premier actors.

On May 23, select cinemas will show The Shakespeare Show to honor the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death. Dr. Who's David Tennant hosts the two hours of performances spanning the Renaissance author's canon. The cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Helen Mirren, John Lithgow, David Suchet, Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, and Joseph Fiennes.

In an exclusive clip, we see Helen Mirren reprise Prospero from The Tempest. She starred in a 2010 film adaption of the sorcerer with Ben Whishaw as Ariel. Here she delivers a partial monologue from Act IV with that classic line, "We are such stuff as dreams are made on."
