Love the format, like the piece
I am not a Shakespeare-nut. The format with an involved narrator made all the difference for me. The characters and background noise make it fun, the narration sets the location and explains the details.

Great way to understand Shakespeare
This was an excellent production of King Lear. The download includes two files, one with commentary throughout and a second file that is the play without commentary, allowing the listener to decide how much explanation is desired. I listened with the commentator and she does a great job of setting the scene before the play begins, provides a good overview of Shakespeare and his time period, and then provides a expert "translation" of the text. This series would be especially helpful to those studying Shakespeare in school. I listened to this in conjunction with Bill Bryson's book Shakespeare.
