Come wend your way along London’s Thames River to the Globe Theatre, where seven favorite Shakespearean plays are being performed! Marcia Williams brings to life “Romeo and Juliet,” “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” “Julius Caesar,” “Hamlet,” “Macbeth,” “The Winter’s Tale,” and “The Tempest,” making liberal use of Shakespeare’s rich dialogue. With the help of her signature comic-strip style, the Bard’s 400-year-old masterworks become as relevant to young readers today as they were to theatergoers way back then.
