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.

(5 stars)

easily one of the best dramatized versions of Shakespeare on this platform!
