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.

The seats were great. I don't think there's a bad seat at the Olney Theater. Had a terrific evening. "Triumph of Love" was wonderfully entertaining. Not to be missed.

What do you do when the man you adore wants to kill you? You seduce him, disguised as a man impersonating another woman, while fending off the affections of both his uncle and his aunt, of course! With the assistance of some clever servants, Princess Léonide transforms herself to win the love of ravishing handsome and sheltered Prince Agis. But her disguises capture more hearts than she bargained for. With a lovely score, and a fanciful story, this bon bon of a musical will make your heart bloom.
“It’s bawdy. It’s whimsical,” explains Director Clay Hopper,“It’s full of gender-bending seductions and plot-twists that will make your head spin.”
