"A Minute with Shakespeare" with WKMS

Each year, festival organizers and community Shakespeare enthusiasts team up with local NPR member station WKMS to produce a series of segments called "A Minute with Shakespeare." You'll find no stodgy professor-speak here. These gems pack the fun and wonder of Shakespeare's memorable characters in 60-second punches. They laugh that win!
