Reviews

"The Globe and Mail"

He is mischievous, keen-eyed, almost flirtatious. Half twinkle, half smirk, he looks out from his portrait with a tolerant, world-weary air. This is Shakespeare. Perhaps you thought you knew him: bald pate, thin brows, stiff white ruff. You thought wrong.


"The New York Times"

Behold that special face. Is it Shakespeare's?
