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 was a really good show. I felt like the actors had taken down the fourth wall and tried to connect with the audience. They were both very convincing in their parts and brought to life a show I've been waiting to see for 10 years. Some of the singing felt a little weak, like they were trying to hit notes they couldn't, but I like how their acting and facial expressions made the songs make even more sense.
