If you haven’t yet discovered the Globe Player app, you must. Don’t walk. Don’t run. Fly to the app that lets you watch Shakespeare on demand.
The Globe Player for iPad and iPhone lets you rent or buy more than fifty filmed stage productions from Shakespeare’s Globe. Most productions are $12.99 to buy, $7.99 to rent. And everything the Globe presents is the best of the best.
If I sound like I’m gushing, it’s because I am. It is a wonderful resource that includes numerous free videos, including the delightful “Sonnet Project NYC” (sonnets recited by various voices around the city). If you’re uncertain where to start, I recommend the Twelfth Night production, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. But really, you can’t go wrong with these plays. They are impeccably staged and performed.
