In fact, about half of the film just flat out does not work, however the half that does work is simply magical.

Therefore, staging this particular work contained a great deal of uncertainty and the need for taking huge risks. Taymor (1997) suggests how ‘the Lion King was the worst idea possible to create a stage show.’ It has become

    Director Julie Taymor's 2010 re-imagining of Shakespeare's fantastical play, The Tempest, introduces a few major changes to its source material. The most noticeable one is her choice to gender-swap the protagonist, Prospero, a male, into Prospera, a female (played by Helen Mirren). In this essay, I will explore how a sex change, and its effects on all the relationships Prospero has - with his daughter, Miranda, his servants, Ariel and Caliban, and his brother, Antonio - disturb The Tempest’s original
