In a Broadway Minute Reviews Public Theater's Radio Version of 'Richard II'

Jul 30, 2020


William Shakespeare is by now used to being produced in Central Park each summer, but that couldn't happen this year. So the Public Theater shifted the cast of the Bard’s Richard II to radio, and WNYC aired the play aired in four parts, all available now. Theater Critic Howard Shapiro reviews the radio play this week on In a Broadway Minute Friday (7/31) at 8 am and Saturday (8/1) at 10 am.
