This recording of one of Shakespeare's beloved comedies is part of the notable Arkangel Complete Shakespeare. The action of the play is illustrated with well-placed sound effects. The clank of coins, the sound of waves, and the scuff of footsteps help to convey the movements of the characters. Niamh Cusack's pretty voice makes her an ideal Viola and a convincing Cesario. Dinsdale Landen's rowdy performance of Sir Toby Belch lives up to the character's name. Confusion may come from the Bard's rapid twists in the doubling of characters and their motives, but the actors perform each line accurately and authentically. The CD is accompanied by a leaflet outlining the action of the plot. R.F. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
