This thesis is a personal narrative of my experience as vocal coach on a production of Ken Ludwig's Shakespeare in Hollywood directed by BT McNicholl and performed in the Raymond Hodges Theatre of Virginia Commonwealth University in November 2005. Chapter one covers my identification of the play's vocal and aural challenges; what I did to prepare for those challenges; the research I gathered on 1930s Hollywood prototypes for the play; an examination of Shakespearean verse, especially that in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and how Ludwig synthesized Shakespeare's verse with that of his own. Chapter two is divided into an account of the rehearsal process; a description of my sessions with the individual actors and an exploration of the dynamics of the vocal coach-director relationship. Chapter three focuses on the finished production and summarizes my response to the experience.

This volume of essays contributes to current debates about Shakespeare in new media. It importantly develops the field by providing a comparativist approach to Shakespeare's dynamic media history. Contributors to Broadcast Your Shakespeare address the variety of ways Shakespeare texts have been expressed through different media and continue to be. Writing at the intersection of Shakespeare studies and media studies, these international contributors also consider the role of a particular media in producing Shakespeare's effect on us - as readers, viewers and users. The volume suggests how current analyses of new media Shakespeare have much to learn from older media, and that an awareness both of media specificity and also continuity can enhance Shakespeare pedagogy and research.

"Lend Me A Tenor is a furiously paced comedy with more than a touch of the Marx brothers... A marvelous combination of wonderful farcical moments and funny lines." Time Out New York "Somewhere up above, George S. Kaufman, Abe Burrows, Moss Hart and all those clever fellows who wrote the comedies of yesteryear are rolling with laughter, echoing the audience last night at Moon Over Buffalo. The play is nothing less than a love letter to live theater." Boston Herald "Ludwig's comedy [Leading Ladies] is so funny, it will make sophisticated and reasonable men and women of the 21st century cackle till their faces hurt." The Houston Press "Shakespeare in Hollywood is so deliciously inventive, you'd swear Ludwig and the Bard were in cahoots. At once poignant and funny, literary and farcical, sophisticated and silly, political and fanciful, high-brow and low-brow... a delight!" The Baltimore Sun
Ken Ludwig ( Shakespeare in Hollywood ) is the author of several Broadway , Off
- Broadway , and West End plays and musicals . Lend Me a Tenor was produced
in London by Andrew Lloyd Webber and nominated for the Olivier Award as ...
