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.

I was pleasantly surprised. Excellent job by both leads, and several supporting roles were also done well. It is not my favorite Shakespeare play--the Queen of Egypt is a ninny, which is insulting to women everywhere--but this Cleopatra played up the humor and did her best with a thankless role. The venue seems to have a better handle on the mosquito problem as well.

Entertaining evening at the Patapsco Female Institute Ruins last night. Great cast of characters to bring to life the words of Shakespeare; including song and dance extras to give the drama a break. Isabelle Anderson was excellent as Cleopatra. ...continued
Come early and enjoy a picnic dinner in the gorgeous tree-shaded setting of the park and catch The Show Before the Show, which might be a musician, a belly dancer or a juggler or something else — it’s a surprise!
