Coinciding with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and the worldwide celebrations of his work, we now have streaming access to seventeen Globe on Screen videos via Drama Online. These productions are filmed live at the Globe Theatre in London, and most are new to us in streaming form. A particular highlight is the all-male production of TWELFTH NIGHT with Mark Rylance as Olivia. There’s much more in Drama Online on Shakespeare’s plays, of course, including the Arden Shakespeare editions, audio recordings, and critical texts. Digital Theatre Plus also includes several Shakespeare productions, including a hilarious MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING set in the 1980s. Happy watching!
