When I made the decision to return to the theatre, I began with Shakespeare, methodically memorizing, (and subsequently recording), his sonnets in numerical order. I memorized them, one per day. Then I made audio recordings, one per day.
If you’re interested in my evolution as an actor, here are my first two mp3 sets of Shakespeare’s Sonnets.
These are my first video recordings of the sonnets: Sonnets by the Dozen.
I also made mp3s and videos of Shakespeare’s The Passionate Pilgrim.
Playlists of more recent performances of Shakespeare’s Sonnets can be found on the Video Projects page.
