Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Tempest is a drama about transformation. The presumed dead are restored to life, wicked individuals change for the better (most of them, anyway) and in the end, magic willingly gives over to the natural order of things.” New York Times
“A dazzling display of theater and theatrics…The Tempest is a delicious mélange of sights, sounds, colors…a mesmerizing theater experience.” Herald and News
“This Tempest reflects many of the values the festival holds dear: trusting veteran actors in key roles; emphasizing clarity of text; adding bold elements to freshen a masterpiece…The Tempest is about power and magic, sleeping and waking, revenge and forgiveness.” Oregonian

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
