Think About It: Shakespeare Is All in Your Mind - New York Times

LONDON - In the role of Prospero, the proprietor of the ultimate fantasy island, Mark Rylance has the whole world in his hands. Or is it in his head? In the soulful, stimulating new production of 'The Tempest' at Shakespeare's Globe Theater here, where Mr. Rylance is in his 10th and final season as artistic director, there seems to be little question that everything that happens occurs in one man's mind. Or that this Prospero, who conducts conversations with the figures on a chess board, is experiencing something like a nervous breakdown in iambic pentameter."
