Subject:        Arkangel Shakespeare

Friends:

Our comprador Amazon, Amazon.ca, is flogging the Complete Arkangel
Shakespeare for some $693 CDN. (Note to our American cousins: that would
be about $29.99 US. Just joking. Or lamenting the sad state of the
loonie; actually, it would be about $470 US). I hate to be so crass, but
is it worth it? I seem to recall reading here last year a good notice
about an Arkangel production of one particular play, though I can't
recall which. Is the entire series well done? Any interesting or
controversial interpretations?  How is the sound quality? How subtle? I
prefer a shouted coarse acting performance I can listen to on the tinny
3 inch speakers in my trusty old rustbucket as I tool around the back
roads of Ontario.
