Subject: *The Tempest* by the Sea
References to Shakespeare in Central Park prompt me to suggest that any
visitor to Newfoundland for the rest of August might want to experience
a rather tempestuous Tempest performed on the ocean at Logy Bay, 10
minutes from central St. John's, on Aug. 15, 18, 22, and 25, starting
at 6:00 pm. It is not for the faint of heart; if the weather is warm
(not likely), insect repellent is advised; otherwise lots of woolies and
blankets are appropriate. As Gonzalo, I get to deliver what seems the
appropriate commentary: "Some heavenly power guide us from this fearful
country." on the positive side, it is a very strong production with the
best set in history; how many other productions have humpback whales
surfacing regularly in the background?
