“To begin at the beginning”, Welsh poet Dylan Thomas never got to fulfil his true dream for his troubled radio play Under Milk Wood. It took 20 years of laborious work to put the final touches on the personalities of fictional Llareggub.

The BroadwayWorld Beginner's Guide to: Shakespeare Photo The BroadwayWorld Beginner's Guide to: Shakespeare
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Jan 22, 2021

You may have fallen in love with him, but often people’s memories are of dry, tedious and impenetrable text. Broadway World would like to try and change that with this beginner's guide.
