    Shakespearean Actors' Bible

    Barry Edelstein has given an amazing gift to those of us who proudly claim the title of "Shakespeare nerd." He opens the language, structure, poetry and prose of the Bard's work--making it crystal clear how to read him, how to follow his plan and how to share him with an audience.

    If you read, direct or perform Shakespeare, you need this book!
