“Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue. … Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand thus, but use all gently… Be not too tame neither, but let your own discretion be your tutor.  For anything so overdone is from the purpose of playing, whose end, both at the first and now, was and is to hold, as ’twere, the mirror up to nature.” – Hamlet

I received the Playing Shakespeare video release from Athena studios for Hanukkah, with legendary director John Barton of the Royal Shakespeare Company and astoundingly young appearances by Judi Dench, Patrick Steward, Ben Kingsley, and more.  Bottom line: AMAZING!  Truly, truly awesome acting and directing going on in those videos.
