Folger Magazine – Spring 2009

Actor Ben Crystal takes a lighthearted, personal look at why the bard is not only fun, but “good for you” in Shakespeare on Toast

Notions that Shakespeare is stuffy, elitist, or just plain boring are knocked soundly on their heads in this engaging look at Shakespeare’s plays, characters, and language.

Novices and longtime fans alike will delight in getting a taste of what Elizabethan theater-going was like, the nuances of poetry vs prose, and why putting witches on stage was such a bold, brilliant move.
