Best of RSC on CD!

Yes, the Royal Shakespeare Company finally had the bright idea to issue commercially some amazing recordings they've been sitting on all these years from some legendary (and some just damn good) Shakespearean performances. The CD's coming out now are really just "highlights".

Some day it would be nice to hear entire productions. No one believes in the visual importance of theatre more than yours truly, but I must admit I'm nostalgic for those old long playing LPs of entire plays. For some drama--Shakespeare, O'Neill--they make perfectly fine listening, as rendered by great actors.

Anyway, I'll highlight the products once they're available on Amazon. Meanwhile--thanks to Webloge--go ahead and click here for a listen.
