Using his wide-ranging experience as an actor, and his study of the critical commentary, Leo Schaff brings Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to life — acting out a portion of the play at a time, then re-reading and “translating” when necessary, shedding light on the language, the characters and the historical context.
With great humor and a timely eye to Shakespeare’s eternal relevance, he shares theatrical anecdote and literary footnote to further illuminate the bottomless study of the Bard.
Read and hear Romeo & Juliet anew: “The more I give to thee, the more I have.” …. “O, I am Fortune’s fool!” … “They stumble that run fast.” Bursting with passion, poetry and the hot-tempered fire of flaming youth. Wooing, feuding, jesting, loving. Comical, colorful … and so very tragic.
