Sixty-Minute Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew

Hi neighbors!

Five Star Publications sent me the Sixty-Minute Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew!  This is an abridged edition written by Cass Foster.  Foster's series already includes A Midsummer Night's Dream, Hamlet, Macbeth, Much Ado About Nothing, Romeo and Juliet, and Twelfth Night.

These books are not adaptations or modernizations, but condensed versions of the Bard's richly poetic books.  These plays have been adjusted to be work in just one hour.  These books are perfect for students to experience Shakespeare's plays even if they are not yet ready for the full versions.

In this book you will find suggestions for staging, scenery, etc.  Foster explains how to stage combat, from throwing punches, slapping and ear pulling along with many others.

You can find these books at the  The books are $8.99 US or $9.99 Can.   The book will be available at Barnes and Noble, and Five Star Publications.

Cass Foster has been actively involved in theatre as an educator, director, fight choreographer, and playwright.  he has taught at several colleges and universities.  Currently he resides on the beautiful Garden Isle of Kauai with his wife Nellie.

So, if you are interested in sharing Shakespeare's works with your children, but think they aren't ready yet for the entire work, check out Sixty-Minute Shakespeare by Cass Foster.

Now I will put a warning here.  They do use God's name in vain quite a bit.  I personally do not care for this.  I know that is how the original is, but I would prefer my daughter not read something like this casually.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive a book for review purposes.  All quotes in red are taken from the sponsor's website or email.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.
