This unique audio anthology shakes up 15 of Shakespeare's classics with contemporary spins. Familiar characters are recast as queer or people of color, familiar plot lines frequently shift genres, and some stories even play around with different formats, using text messages or oral histories. Each story is voiced by one or several narrators who match the gender expression of the main protagonist, giving the audiobook a robust collection of distinct performances. Every tragedy, romance, and comedy is narrated with the ideal amount of enthusiasm, high energy, or relaxed pacing and allows listeners to savor each shortened interpretation. A delightful listen for Shakespeare fans looking for a more contemporary approach. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2021]
