WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE'S STAR WARS Shakespeare's Star Wars Trilogy, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Daniel Davis, Jonathan Davis, January LaVoy, Marc Thompson

Audio Theater • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Dost thou jest? The space opera STAR WARS performed as if written by the Bard himself? Yea, verily, and it is good. It’s amazing how easily and naturally the STAR WARS epic is translated into the Shakespearian tongue and how expertly the full cast, including Daniel Davis, Jonathan Davis, January LaVoy, and others, delivers the work. The characterizations are so spot-on, the delivery so outstanding that the listener quickly accepts the premise. Luke Skywalker works perfectly as a futuristic Hamlet, Obi-Wan echoes Prospero, and Darth Vader makes a compelling Macbeth. The performance is joyful and even musical as the story set in the future uses the beautiful language of the past. The audiobook is also short enough that the listener will not tire of the experiment.
