I want to take Ariel home with me.

He was the coolest.

And they did snazzy magic tricks, yo.

Ferdinand is such a player (and possibly a tool as well). Some of that was largely due to the inflection on his lines, though. Also, Miranda was a bit over the top (and it was interesting, but nothing more, casting her as a plain girl). She's 15, never seen a male besides her father and Caliban, and is in a Shakespearean play; need i say more?

Honestly, i feel for Caliban and think Prospero something of a jerk. I should elaborate on this, but i'm not up for it, particularly not without a script handy.

They played "Beautiful Freak" when the spirits (women in black with white masks on both sides of their head) bring a feast out for Trinculo, Stefano, and Caliban. ???

Christina and Adam (who take the Shakespeare class) said they cut a lot of lines.
