But if Meadows wasn't the first such seeker, he was undoubtedly the least likely among them. Thrice-divorced and drinking too much, he was living off of military disability checks aboard a derelict yacht. For Meadows, staging the first-ever professional "original pronunciation" production of Shakespeare's work in New York City would become one last shot at redemption after a lifetime of tragedy.

not what i thought
it's billed as a search to discover what actual Shakespearean language sounded like, and while there is a small bit of it, in actuality it is more a short bio of this Fromson and his attempts to put on plays in the original. while it is interesting regarding that, and in the right hands might make an interesting documentary, that is not why i got it, and there is actually very little of the recreated "sound" of the dialogue. and no large scenes from the plays or speeches at length for comparison.
