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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the venue. Presented in absolutely Spartan style, sans props (the absence of which went totally unnoticed in the presence of the fine acting), and featuring interim entertainment, concessions and audience engagement much as no doubt occurred when originally put on at the Globe itself. I'd go back to watch these folks anytime; in fact I'm hoping to attend their upcoming Midsummer Night's Dream performance at Johns Hopkins. All parts well played, especially those of Hamlet and Ophelia. Bravo!
