Reviews For American Shakespeare Center Podcast Central

I was o fortunte to be able to see multiple performnance of "Merry Wives", "Much Ado" and "Titus Andronicus" as well as opening performances the Rough, Rude and Boisterous tour. I'll be out of the country for a year, but these podcasts allow me to hear at least some of the plays. I really enjoy Dr Ralph's lectures, and the Backstage Passes allow me to get better idea of the acotrs, both in character and out.

I am so lucky to live near enough to this amazing place to have seen 4 plays (Much Ado, Hamlet 1st quarto, Winter's Tale and Cymbeline). The podcast is great and the live performances are even better. I can't recommend them enough. This is not stuffy Shakespeare - this is entertainment like the first audiences enjoyed. I am a teenager and Blackfriar's has single-handedly caused me to fall in love with Shakespeare. (Also Greg Phelps, but that's another story....)
I’ve been to this theater twice and it was life changing. I never knew how much I loved Shakespeare until I saw these performers. The way they express themselves helps to add emphasis on what you need to know to understand the play. I live only an hour away from this theater and it is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. It’s made to look like the Globe, the place where Shakespeare originally showed his plays. If you’re in the area please, please, please, come to see these actors!!!
This has to be one of the best Shakespeare podcasts out there. I've been a fan of this company since it was known as the Shenandoah Shakespeare Express, and to hear the actors talk about the text and the choices they've made is just fantastic. Whether or not you ever get to actually make it to the Blackfriars (and you should), listening to these podcasts is the next best thing. Kudos to the American Shakespeare Center!
Excellent for the lovers of the bard. Provides interesting insights into the world of early modern playwrights and early modern actors.
