One sign of the enduring popularity of William Shakespeare's work is they way many speeches from his best-known plays have become common elements of the English vocabulary, with as many find themselves quoting his work without even realizing it. Shakespeare's Soliloquies is a home video which features an ensemble of gifted performers reciting the best-known monologues from the Bard's great plays. Included are classic moments from Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Richard III, Julius Caesar, and many more. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
I've seen wonderful productions of Shakespeare and more than a few bad ones, but this is the worst. It is amateurish and self-important. This particular disaster resembles a talent night at community college. Aspiring students and instructors who prove the adage âthose who cannot do, teachâ get up on stage and stare off into some infinite distance and talk to themselves. Would that they understood what they were saying. On the positive side, the costumes arenât bad and it seems like a nice little theatre but those are the only virtues of this low budget vanity production.
