Review of the hardback: '... an extremely useful resource to scholars of Shakespeare on both stage and screen.' Theatre Notebook Review of the hardback: 'Methodologically ... highly innovative, boldly fusing two critical schools usually seen as incompatible: textual and performance criticism. Aebischer demonstrates that the study of Shakespeare in performance cannot replace the close attention to the play texts, but may potentially enrich our understanding of them.'
