I love hthis play but not this production. It was difficult to hear, (Ariel's character in particular) and the female chorus was distracting at best. It lacked the magic and artistry that Shakespeare wrote into the script.

I am a big Shakespeare fan but I really didn't like the performance. It wasn't what I expected. Being Shakespeare's last play and his farewell to his audience, I expected it to be performed differently. The repeated punning around took away...continued

Description

A shipwreck delivers a party of conspirators and their guests to an island inhabited by a sorcerer, his daughter, and a mélange of characters, of both the magical and half-human sort. It’s payback time for the villains, as the Sorcerer Prospero now has the opportunity for revenge. But things change for all when the sorcerer’s daughter falls for the enemy’s son, and in the final moment, the Bard leaves us “with such stuff as dreams are made on”.
