And Geraint Wyn Davies gives us a Prospero who is a temperamental, gravelly, flesh-and-blood nobleman, more Hemingway than Santa Claus. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Annapolis Shakespeare Company's MACBETH Slays 'Em at Studio 111BWW Reviews: Annapolis Shakespeare Company's MACBETH Slays 'Em at Studio 111

This is as much as I will say about the script, in the rare circumstance that you might not already know the plot. (more...)
