It’s 1613 and William Shakespeare is renowned as one of the greatest writers of his time, but the Globe Theatre has burnt to the ground and the Bard has retired to his family home in Stratford-upon-Avon. There, he must face the ghosts of his past – particularly the death of his only son – and attempt to mend the broken relationships with his long-suffering wife and daughters. Kenneth Branagh delivers an intimate and revelatory portrait of a fascinating genius and flawed man.
A lovely tribute to Shakespeare and a vivid imagining of his final years.Anonymous Broadway customer
