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.

I could (and just may) go see this play again. It is a brilliant piece of writing: intelligent, witty, and moving. The protagonist, Arnold, who is extraordinarily well-played to the point the actor IS Arnold, will win your heart. This is a piece of theatre that is enormously entertaining and, and the same time, so very insightful as to the fact that gay people are still people, with many of the same dreams, hopes, and issues the rest of us have - plus challenges that the rest of us who are considered more mainstream do not suffer. But, sexuality aside,, Torch Song Trilogy is simply a great play, and the cast does a fabulous job with it. Do not miss it while it is here in DC, and done so well.
Torch Song Trilogy stars Brandon Uranowitz (Broadway’s Baby, It’s You) as Arnold, with Obie Award winner Gordana Rashovich (Roundabout’s The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore) as Ma and Todd Lawson (The New Group’s One Arm, Broadway’s Summer and Smoke) as Ed. The production also features Alex Mills, last seen at Studio in 2ndStage’s 2-2 Tango, as Alan and Helen Hayes Award nominee Sarah Grace Wilson (Studio’s The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie) as Laurel. Rounding out the cast are newcomer Michael Lee Brown as David and Ashleigh King (Studio 2ndStage’s The Rocky Horror Show) as Lady Blues.
This show runs three and a half hours.
