Top-notch Tempest

To the Editor:

I made a really good decision to attend Crystal Lake South Theater’s production of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.”

All aspects of the show were creative and professional: the set, the performances and the music. Yes, the music.

As luck would have it, I was seated next to Josh Brent, the student composer who scored the play. He was exuberant and charming. The music added another dimension to the work.

Three nights of performances seemed like too few, though, for all of the work put in by the cast, production staff and crew.

I also want to mention the Crystal Lake group of Shakespearean readers who undertook the study of “The Tempest” early in the summer. Being a guest of that group gave me the background to understand the performance on a deeper level.

It seems like there’s a whole lot of Shakespeare goin’ on.
