Subject:        Re: The Tempest

I am curious as to why so few theatre companies select "The Tempest" as a
production.  Perhaps it is because it requires original music, special effects,
like flying, and a huge cast; or is it just a mediocre script?  I would be
interested to hear about how various directors have approached "The Tempest" if
they are out there.  I would also like to hear from anyone who has a video
suggestion, besides "Prospero's Books" and the B movie "Tempest."  Has anyone
producted this play?
