The Tempest is always filled with magic. Part of the magic in Shakespeare & Company’s production is the setting, out of doors in the Shakespeare Garden. Watching it in the early evening was enchanting. The other magic is the actors and Shakespeare. This play has everything, treachery, love and the most hilarious clowns ever.
Bob and I interviewed Allyn Burrows, the director, during rehearsals. After the interview, he invited us into the garden to watch a rehearsal. That was fun, but seeing the play with the wonderful costumes and Ariel in the trees was even better.
