I Love the Commentary

I'm a high school teacher and bought this to sue with my class. I don't find the commentary distracting but helpful. My students quickly figured out that when a particular voice was talking that was explanation. Also, there is a version of the play without any commentary in the file as well.

Now I get it...

The narration and explanations are helpful. I have always struggled through Shakespearean plays.

Don't fret.

This production also comes with a performance that is uninterrupted. Start on Chapter 6 of the audio book for it.
