An excellent production of the Tempest. Terrific cast all around, but especially Nigel Hawthorne as Stephano and Warren Clarke as Caliban. (The dancing and musical sequences, however, become almost hypnotic in their silliness.) But that's a small complaint - it's terrific. And like someone else said, you will probably need the subtitles (unless you have the play memorized.)
