Reviews - What do customers think about Richard III (Arkangel Shakespeare)?
Great listening Apr 24, 2008
It's remarkable how writing which can seem dry and dead on the printed page can come alive in the voice of a professional actor. That's certainly the case with this play. I never liked "Richard III" in reading it; it was only when I heard this stellar performance that I really appreciated it as great drama.
