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 setup - "girl vows never to fall in love then falls in love" presents the problem of making us believe. For instance Benedick's switch in Much Ado risks our perceiving him as a man of trivial conviction. What I loved about the production was the way Natalia Miranda-Guzman acts the transition of a woman determined to eschew love, but who then tumbles headlong into it. Of course Moreto's classic script provides the means, but Miranda-Guzman is wonderful, and the entire cast is outstanding. Well acted, well sung, well played. The only obstacle for me, with my minimal Spanish, was the problem they were having with the surtitles - sometimes out of sync and twice the operator had to go back and forth to get back on track. But the production is very good, especially for those with good Spanish.
