by | Read by Juliet Stevenson, Alex Jennings

Children Ages 8+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

This accessible introduction to some of the better-known Shakespearean classics is aimed at younger listeners. In addition, it would serve well as a refresher for theatergoers who need to review a specific play. The narrators perform eight plays, including JULIUS CAESAR, THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, and THE TAMING OF THE SHREW. The plays have been appropriately abridged and include the best-known lines. Narrators Juliet Stevenson and Alex Jennings perform with clarity, engagement, and expression. Accompanying lute music contributes to a sense of the time period. This production can be enjoyed multiple times and would be a good addition to one's permanent library. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
