I got this as a personal email from a friend today and begged them to let me post it. It entirely encapsulates my own thoughts on this particular production. So, take the opinion as mine and the wording as their own particular genius.
“Ponder, if you dare, the horror notion of The Tempest with John Kani (doorknobishly talentless) as Caliban and SEAH Anthony Sher (me me me me me me me and I I I I I I egomaniac) as Prospero? Apparently, it looks like a sold out OMG oioioioi-MG. This production is a sure winner of the Mama Mia award for clammy, hammed up crock of shyte. The Yid and the Coconut… Mel Brooks, take over!Â Â I give up.Â Theatre belongs to hopeless dreamers and the brain-dead.Â Deeply depressing.”
