By taking the most famous scenes and monologues from the canon of Shakespearean works and presenting them in a contemporary style, new and often remarkable interpretations of the classic materials emerge. We see the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet as a late-night phone call, the witches from Macbeth as bag ladies, the wooing scene from The Taming of the Shrew as a wrestling bout, the confrontation between Harry and Hotspur from Henry IV done in ritualistic fighting mode, and Marc Antony's speech from Julius Caesar as a press conference. Add to that energetic portrayals of a handful of the most recognizable Shakespearean soliloquies penned and you have a wonderful way to introduce young actors and audiences to the fantastic world of Elizabethan literature.
