Description:

Internationally acclaimed actor and Tony Award-winner, Alan Cumming performs Shakespeare’s most important and beloved royal speeches, including “To be or not to be,” “Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow,” “Now is the winter of our discontent,” “O that this too sullied flesh would melt” and more. All the speeches were personally chosen by Cumming. Michael Boyd adds, “Cumming brings to Shakespeare the lyricism of a genuine singer, the sharp edge of a wicked comic, and the embodied intelligence of a major actor.”
