’Tempest’ an untraditional treat

As I sat and watched the University Theatre's adaptation of 'The Tempest,' I wondered what William Shakespeare would have thought. With costumes ranging from Armani suits to ripped-up daisy dukes, techno music-dancing spirits and a woman playing the lead role of Prospero, this was not exactly a traditional portrayal of Shakespeare's tale of betrayal, magic and forgiveness. Yet all these eccentricities seemed not only to make the Shakespearean language and themes more accessible to this largely college-age audience, but also accentuated and magnified the level of dark surrealism and creepiness that can be read into this play.
