This review is from: Playing Shakespeare [DVD] (DVD)
For anyone who loves seeing Shakespeare plays and wonders about the techniques involved in making his work intelligible and compelling to a modern audience, this is a chance to see something of the work involved in acting in a major production. It is also fascinating seeing stars like Judi Dench, Patrick Stewart and David Suchet at an earlier stage in their careers; I find the episode where the last two do excerpts from their different ways of playing Shylock especially good.
