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.

Engaging production, of which the highlight was the technology used to enhance the story. The acting was solid, with Faber the best. Except for the ending, and the people named for books, not much suspense as it is clear that the hero is going to rebel.

This was a very stirring recreation of Bradbury's blockbuster novel that I remember being so impressed with as a youth. The acting, the staging, and the directing are first class. Bradbury's prescience back in the 50s is truly amazing....note...continued
By Ray Bradbury, based on his novel
Directed by Sharon Ott*
Bradbury’s masterpiece about a future without books comes chillingly to life in an adaptation by the legendary author himself.
Firemen in this futuristic world burn books and hunt down anyone who risks reading them. Free-thought and intellectualism are discouraged, questioning authority is dangerous, and the masses are spoon-fed a diet of interactive reality shows on their huge TVs. Montag, a fireman in charge of burning the forbidden volumes, befriends a young woman who dares to read. Suddenly a hunted fugitive, he must choose between safety and intellectual freedom.
Bradbury’s message still resonates today in this production utilizing cutting-edge special effects and projections.
