Good storm choreography, Tempest in a bathtub

See it if You like Shakespeare in any shape or form & want to support small companies & inexperienced actors. Amusing version, but not expertly done.

Don't see it if you dislike small companies, & want your Shakespeare fully baked, expertly cast & w 16th century music, not rock & popular music. Read more
