    Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. 'Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

    Story

    Marc Thompson and the rest of the cast clearly had a very enjoyable time with this production. Theatre was a very large part of my life at one point which meant Shakespeare was too. It's a brilliant adaptation and anyone who likes Star Wars and/or the works of William Shakespeare should check it out. Archtypes that Shakespeare clearly defines in many of his works are easily translate to the Star Wars Universe:R2-D2 as Puck and Darth Vader as Iago.
    For those who are not into Shakespeare, but enjoy Star Wars this is a great way to understand Iambic pentameter if you have difficultly with it. The Audio production last only slightly longer then the movie itself, so a person could nearly follow along with the audio production with the movie if they have any difficulties with the language.
    For my part I found this a greatly entertaining listen and would recommend to anyone who enjoys Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.
