John Barton Is Amazing!, 26 April 2012
I first became aware of John Barton back in the 1980's when our PBS station here in the States carried "Playing Shakespeare With The RSC." His knowledge and discussions with the actors on Shakespeare were truly fascinating. I was thrilled when they finally released that series on DVD last year. When I came across this DVD with John Barton doing the same sort of instruction/discussion with American actors, I had to get it. I enjoyed watching this program a great deal. As always, Barton's comments are instructive and of great interest to anyone reading/acting Shakespeare. My only complaint about the program is that it's much too short (1 hour). I could have happily listened to Barton discussing the subject matter for several hours.
