oh god, if you don't know how to read for an audience, DON'T. I appreciate the effort of the readers, but some sound no better than a computet-generated voice, making the end product useless as audio. To the good readers: thanks for your attempt to make this listenable.

It was not great. Some of the men are played by women. Not really a problem for me though. Not the best acting.

you couldn’t have made it any better

Loved the reading of this play but Shakespeare is not my favorite author.
