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.

When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night.

My first time for seeing her live, although I had seen her on PBS - Definitely a star in the industry - She sang for about 90 minutes intermixed with friendly and witty banter with the audience - including talk of her current production of the rewritten "Porgie and Bess" which premieres on Broadway in December
She has won 4 Tonys, 3 before the age of 28, out of 8 Broadway shows (I think).
Well worth the discounted cost of the ticket - looking forward to seeing her on Broadway!!
