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 cherry blossoms weren't out but that is hardly within the control of the company offering this tour. Despite that, the tour was very informative and fun. The group was the right size. The guide was very knowledgeable and gracious. And the Kite Festival on the Mall almost made up for the lack of cherry blossoms. I did not know the tour was for two-hours, most of that spent standing or walking. I think that fact should be a little more prominent. That, though, is a quibble. I recommend this tour.

Really, really great. Loved all the history and was shown gardens I had not known existed--a real treat for me. I will definately take more tours. I live in the area, but there's a lot I don't know about! The trees were beautiful even though...continued
Hear the stories and secrets behind the delicate blossoms during a walking tour featuring not only cherry trees, but also noteworthy arboreal cousins. Learn about the woman whose cherry tree vision lives on today, a Japanese lantern older than the United States itself, and where you can discover even more pink and white blooms. _
__Please note that this walking tour does not include a walk around the entire Tidal Basin area. (It is usually too crowded to bring a walking tour group around the Tidal Basin.) The walk concludes at the Tidal Basin, site of most of the famous Japanese cherry trees. Walk participants are welcome to walk the area on their own._ The tour lasts for approximately two hours and will take place rain or shine.
