This Saturday, April 23rd, people around the world will be celebrating William Shakespeare's 447th birthday. One of the ways to participate? Talk like Shakespeare!

To hear how the pros do it, here is an excerpt from the Sourcebooks Shakespeare Macbeth, Sir Derek Jacobi (our esteemed narrator) introducing the Porter scene.


Act 2, Scene 3, lines 1-36

(On not-unrelated notes, Sir Derek Jacobi is garnering acclaim for his portrayal of King Lear, currently at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the new Dr. Who begins this weekend.  The voice of the Porter in our excerpt? David Tennant!)
