Dennis Brown and Deanna Jent suss out local theater

The TempestWilliam Metzo's beautifully rendered portrayal of the outcast Prospero captures the rich values inherent in a play that is only a comedy because it's not a tragedy. Alas, Shakespeare's text has been transposed so that Prospero is almost reduced to a supporting player, and when he exits Act One, too much substance exits with him. Performed by the Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis through June 19 (except Tuesdays) on the Emerson Stage on Art Hill in Forest Park. Admission is free. Call 314-361-0101. (DB)
