The words of The Bard fly, flash and flourish amid the birds and trees of upper Elmwood Park where Shakespeare on the Green freely flows. Such a site perfectly suits The Tempest. Marooned magus Duke Prospero and his innocent daughter Miranda live in wild, open land peopled by unpredictable  indigenous creatures. The tiny territory sees a sea change; nobles from Prospero’s Italian mainland alter the dynamics. He has tricks up his sleeves. Strange things happen. Sweet ones too before the revels end. Rob Urbinati directs. One week after that debut, jolly frolics unfold in repertory as director Vincent Carlson-Brown and 12 actors deconstruct all 37 Shakespeare plays in under two hours in Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Windfield’s The Compleat Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). These delights cost you nothing. But come prepared to be a groundling. Like those of yore, hope that no actual storm assails you in the open air.
