I am delighted to be back at the Folger Theatre and Shakespeare Library working on an exciting new project: Immersive recording of the full edition of Macbeth.
Working with publishers
Simon & Schuster, acclaimed editors Barbara Mowat and
Paul Werstine, and under the direction of Robert Richmond, we are creating full audio book recordings as well as a state of the art iPhone/iPad app of some of Shakespeare's "greatest hits.
For my part in the project: I am playing Banquo, Hecate and Siward in Macbeth."
