JUDI DENCH’S EXITS AND ENTRANCES

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

EXITS AND ENTRANCES REVIEWED

“Exits and Entrances” is the pinnacle of the EMR Dench Classics releases. While no new ground is broken, we get to listen to the best of Shakespeare recited by the Denchs and friends. I’ve been enjoying the recent Shakespeare birthday celebrations and celebrities reciting the original works. But, I haven’t stopped listening to this disc for the last month. Judi Dench has found true beauty in a world where Trap Queen fills the ears.

While the material sounds like it would bore younger readers, that might not be far off. It’s not for everyone, but it hits that audio aesthetic itch that so many possess. The best works of the English language are condensed into what should be taught in schools. It’s not dumbed down, but purified into its best form.
