Quotes

Caliban: Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,/Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not./ Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments /Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices /That, if I then had waked after long sleep, /Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,/ The clouds methought would open and show riches/ Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,/ I cried to dream again.

Proof that William Shakespeare was on drugs!
16 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christopher Plummer produced and acted as Prospero, the former duke, on an island somewhere with his angel spirit, Blue Ariel, and his strange friend Caliban. This is a stage production at the Stratford Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. The actors and actresses are well versed in Shakespeare. Ariel is a welcome delight. Her blue costume and makeup captures your attention. I have never seen an actual stage production of this particular play but I don't care to see it. It's not one of my favorite Shakespeare comedies. Believe it or not, this is a comedy by Shakespeare standards. I have never been fan of his works but I had to study them as requirement. Christopher Plummer is a Shakespearan veteran actor. Shakespeare is highest form of drama on stage. Not everybody can do Shakespeare but Plummer can do it with passion and drive. He is like other Shakespeare veterans here. Not everybody can do it or maybe want too. If you want to see a Tempest production on stage, this version is sufficient.
