Podcast 41: A Midsummer Night’s Dream DVD Reviews

This week’s podcast continues our month-long discussion of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, with reviews of five productions available on DVD: the 1935 Max Reinhardt Warner Brothers version, the 1968 Peter Hall Royal Shakespeare Company version, the 1994 Adrian Noble production (also from the RSC), and the 1999 Michael Hoffman film with Kevin Kline.  We make a pretty big announcement about our first interactive Project event: video office hours.  And we finish off with our usual recap of this week’s blog entries.

Errata:
14:20 — Text should be “late 80s” instead of “late 70s”
22:58 — Text should be “debrief about it on next week’s” instead of “debrief on next week’s”
