'Having Crystal as a companion through the stickier parts of Hamlet
is like going to the theatre with an intelligent friend.' --The Independent
'A highly worthwhile series, which should prove to be valuable for directors, actors and students…This formula really works. As an experiment, your dedicated reviewer tried out Macbeth
in preparation for and following on from the Eve Best production of the Globe. The experience was definitely improved, with some of the tips on words and language proving especially helpful and enlightening… These really are excellent little guides that will prove informative to almost anybody with an interest in the subject.' --Philip Fisher, British Theatre Guide
