Shakespeare saved his best for last: his final play, The Tempest, is his most magical and engrossing tale. It follows the adventures of Prospero, an exiled duke who lives as the master of an enchanted isle abounding with fantastical creatures, mystery, music and romance. When a shipwreck delivers Prospero's enemies to the island, the plot thickens as his beloved daughter falls for one of the castaways. Bring a lawn chair and a picnic basket and enjoy this outdoor production from the Olney Theatre Center at the Root Family Stage. In celebration of the 65th anniversary of the National Players -- OTC's touring company of young professional actors -- celebrated National Player "veterans" will compose half the cast while current company members will take the younger roles.

It starts slowly. But the one act, hour and a half, review deffinetly picks up steam, I knew surprisingly few of the musical numbers -- given that I know a fair amount of the American Musical songbook. But many of the "first-timers" (for me) were worth the listen. While there is no dialogue, there is more than music. Dancing, acrobatics and even fire eating create a Great Show. While the entire cast is accomplished, the sheer drive and the multipicity of talents of Andrew Sonntag was remarkable.
