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.

My expectations were far exceeded as the actors were both fantastic and hilarious. You don't have to know Shakespeare to follow the plot or appreciate the humor that included a modern twist. I'd definitely recommend this show to friends.
What happens when four young Athenians run off into a forest—a forest where the Fairie King and Queen “keep their revels” and a troupe of well-meaning amateur actors rehearse for an impending royal wedding?
