What Readers Say

Actors Talk About Shakespeare

"Your book arrived and I devoured it quickly because it is an excellent resource for actors and scholars."
--Keith Garebian, Canadian writer, theater books

“What a terrific book! It will be so valuable to future generations of theatre scholars and artists. It is a real gift to each of the actors represented in the book, a detailed record of their process and interpretive choices. Actors rarely have scholars recording their work in this systematic way."
--Jerry Dickey, Professor of Theatre, University of Arizona

“A delightful book with real insights into the power of theatrical imagery from Shakespeare’s day to the present: insightful, enjoyable, and particularly enlightening for theater lovers. This lets me share a wider acting world I usually view only through the eyes of the few professional actors I know. I highly recommend it for all committed audience members like me.”
--Jean Rush, Professor of Art, Illinois State University

"The reader is invited to share from each of these actors their personal approach to performing Shakespeare--their insights and experiences. The book also includes the professional background and performance history of each actor. I loved it!"
--Margaret Ramsay, Professor of Dance, University of California, Santa Barbara
