Reaction Report

An interesting article on gender-boundary-breaking Shakespeare productions at The Shakespeare Blog has some good things to say about us.

We got a very nice write-up at the Shakespeare Standard website's weekly Multimedia write-up. This is a nice place to check for what's happening in Shakespeare around the world.

We've been mentioned on the "Hamlet: Act 3" episode of the Bardcast podcast, and in the show notes. It's an interesting & entertaining source of Shakespeare talk, so if that sounds like something you'd enjoy you can subscribe to the whole podcast or that specific episode via iTunes or get the file at Feedburner.
