The Tempest

Caliban recruits Stephano and Trinculo in a plot to overthrow Prospero.

Last night I attended a performance of The Tempest by GreenMan Theatre Troupe. Adding to the fun was seeing my friends Scott and Elizabeth on stage.

The Tempest

Caliban (Justin Vidovic) recruits Stephano and Trinculo (Scott and Elizabeth Surowiecki) in a plot to overthrow Prospero.

This isn’t the first foray into acting for Scott and Elizabeth. Both have impressive résumés. Acting actually brought them together. After meeting at an audition, they married a few years later.

Written around 1610, The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s last plays. Mixing comedy, magic and romance with themes of loss, forgiveness, revenge and freedom, The Tempest has been called a comedy, tragedy, romance and more. It runs the gamut of emotions and elicits the same from the audience.

The Tempest

The king’s (Rhys Read) brother, Sebastian, (Matthew Walsh) tries to help find their way, with Antonio (Katharina Beckerleg) and Adrian (Ric Holloman).

GMTT was formed in 2003 when Jill Perez and Carol Thorpe came together with director David Soria. Currently presenting a four-show season, GMTT also offers classes and workshops in theatre arts.

Having seen Scott and Elizabeth in other forms of entertainment, I knew they would be good, but their performances and the size of their parts was impressive. I was proud of my friends and happy for them. They did great.

GMTT put on a fantastic production, and I look forward to returning for future shows. Upcoming shows include Scooby Doo in That’s How the Cookie Murders! and Bright Star by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.The Tempest

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
