Meghan Rees The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Response On Wednesday, June 1, 2011, I attended The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Directed by Alan Smithee and written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jesse Winfied, I thought the play successfully captured the audience’s attention by interpreting Shakespeare in an unconventional way. The decision to use only three actors (Billy Chace as Billy, Justin McCombs as Justin, and Brian Issac Phillips as Brian) was interesting and effective. It created the sense that three people (such as the playwrights) were casually explaining Shakespeare’s work in a modern way for the audience to understand. Overall, the actors portrayed their characters adequately. I thought Phillips was the most believable in his acting. He was the strongest actor on the stage and was able to consistently stay in character. Chace was the actor I thought was least believable. Instead of looking out towards the audience, he constantly looked at the other characters to see what he needed to do. This made him seem hesitant in what he was doing and saying during the play. McCombs was the most entertaining, as his depiction of many different females was given. He was fun to watch because he really transformed into the character he was playing, such as Juliet, and gave it his all. He was the best choice for his role since he was the smallest, thus relating more physically to a female.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
