Editorial Reviews

“The entire cast is strong, and Adrian Lester plays Mark Antony with genuine power. Even if you’ve heard it before, his delivery of the famous ‘Friends, Romans, countrymen’ speech should stop you in your tracks.” Audiofile

Story

A great classic, well performed & recorded.

It is beyond belief that Michael Feast is reading this play, because it appears to have a full cast. I looked the recording up elsewhere and found John Bowe and Adrian Lester also listed, but even that seems not enough. However many actors are doing the voices, their performances are excellent and the sound effects well done. The play done this way is even better than in live-stage performances I've seen b/c the actors are very professional. Perhaps there's an advantage to making retakes if necessary, perhaps the skill levels are higher than in the live shows I saw. I'm looking for more Shakespeare on Downpour.

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
