Not for a teaching tool

What would have made Much Ado About Nothing better?

This audio does not follow the original text of the play. I ended up not being able to use the audio because it skips lines, paragraphs, and entire sections of scenes. If you are looking for using the audio as a teaching tool, do not use this one.

The readers were decent, but I think a few of them could have used more inflection, differentiation of pitch (and volume) to make it easier to differentiate between characters.

Great audio version, Shakespeare was mean to be performed and reading along while you listen along will make it 4 times as rich!
