This review is from: Shakespeare: The Essential Comedies: v. 1 (Classic Radio Theatre) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Perhaps it is because I have attended and been delighted by live performances of the Bard's wonderful works but I found myself disappointed in this Boxset. Once seen it is very difficult to go back to merely listening to Shakespeare and I unfortunately found these quite dull. Casting was of high quality, with some very big names, but it just didn't do it for me. My conclusion - I prefer to see Shakespeare rather than simply hear it.
