Ring in the new year — with Shakespeare

Party like it’s 1599

In spite of the date on the calendar, on this New Year’s Eve we here at Paul Meier Dialect Services are going to party like it’s 1599! That’s because we are celebrating the release of Paul’s Voicing Shakespeare ebook on iTunes (Apple Books). The ebook was first published in 2008 for Windows, and now we have finally released a new and improved iTunes version compatible with Mac, iPhone, and iPad. For more details, go directly to iTunes. And for the original Windows version, go here.

The ebook, which sells for $29.99, features embedded audio and video. You will enjoy seven major sections, all divided into short and easy-to-read chapters, unlocking all the secrets you need to perform Shakespeare’s great work with confidence, clarity, and power. The ebook thoroughly explores verse; prose; voice, speech, and dialect; physical performance; musical dynamics; and Shakespeare’s rhetoric. In addition to readings by Paul, the ebook includes performances from 17 well-respected actors and theatre professors: 76 performances in all.

Happy New Year!
