had the time to read them. It is easy to watch the series instead. I would
recommend these for educational and entertainment purpose.
I was not impressed with this version of King Lear. There were many cuts and tinkering with the orders of events and characters. I much preferred the offerings from Olivier and McKellen. I also found it difficult to follow Magee's dialogue, especially during his mad scene on the moors.
I enjoyed this production of Romeo & Juliet. The only comment I would make is that both of the main actors were much too old for their parts, especially Juliet who was quoted by Shakespeare as being under 14 years of age. Ann Hasson, good as she was in the part, was quite clearly well into her twenties.
This production of Twelfth Night, as much as I enjoyed it, came across to me as not so much a comedy as a sad little tale with a few humorous moments. Generally well acted by all.
The background staging is a bit of Crossroads quality but this does not matter if you are looking at content which has been presented in clear and audible manner.
Dont buy it for the actors ability (which can be likened to a performance put on to fill the time between meals) but for the clarity of recounting the script.
