No Shakespeare Before Its Time

Orson Welles was one of those rare human beings who had an idiosyncratic way of doing everything. I’m convinced he brushed his teeth more intensely than anybody else who ever lived. He lived, loved and laughed as heartily as they come.

While I don’t always care for his particular stamp on Shakespeare, I never fail to be intrigued by it. The man could not have been boring unless he tried. Even then he would have done it with gusto. Perhaps that’s why so many took offense to his genius and he had to spend most of his career making movies outside the studio system.

Be that as it may, you can listen to Orson Welles’ Classic Radio Performance of 10 Shakespeare Plays HERE.

You’ll know if it’s time.
