You need an intimate knowledge of the Plays to fully appreciate the setting of each presentation (with some exceptions).

Roger Rees was very good!! The dialogue was very fast and the humor was a little older and more intellectual then I expected. You had to really ""KNOW" Shakespeare.

Quotes & Highlights

“Exciting…charming…as [Rees] serves each little morsel, your wish is akin to Oliver Twist’s: Please, sir, some more.” —Washington Post
“The comic highlight of the year…not since Monty Python’s Spamalot opened on Broadway have I laughed as heartily and often as I did at Roger Rees’ one-man show.” -North Adams Transcript
“At once merrily irreverent and respectful, audaciously dismissive and deserving, puckishly playful and protective, sublimely whimsical and wise…a delicious evening of theater in the fullest sense of the word.” _-Berkshire Eagle _


What You Will is a celebration of theatre’s most impactful playwright, by history’s most influential players. There’s Romeo, Juliet’s foolish Nurse, gory Macbeth, Hamlet and the oh-so-tragic Richard II, joined by the likes of Charles Dickens, James Thurber, Noël Coward and Stevie Wonder.

Roger Rees, a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for 22 years, won both Olivier and Tony awards for his acclaimed performance in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. American television audiences know him as the dashing English tycoon Robin Colcord on “Cheers,” British Ambassador Lord John Marbury on “The West Wing” and Dr. Colin Marlow on “Grey’s Anatomy.” His films include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “Frida,” “The Pink Panther” and “The Prestige,” among many others.
