William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future!
By Ian Doescher
Narrated by Sean Patrick Hopkins, Sean Kenin, Patricia Santomasso & Full Cast / 3 hours 35 minutes
“This full-cast recording is PERFECT for a family road trip. Funny & clever, just the way Shakespeare ought to be but with a hilarious 80's feel. Using Shakespeare's language may put some people off but I highly recommend trying a few lines, it really adds nuance to the text and gives kids a taste of how they could love classic literature. If you haven't listened to the Star Wars series, it's also a delightful listen that the whole family can enjoy!”Genavieve, Books & Company
In the iconic film by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, teenaged Marty McFly travels back in time from the 1980s to the 1950s, changing the path of his parents' destiny...as well as his own. Now fans of the movie can journey back even further--to the 16th century, when the Bard of Avon unveils his latest masterpiece: William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future! Every scene and line of dialogue from the hit movie is re-created with authentic Shakespearean rhyme, meter, and stage directions. This reimagining also includes jokes and Easter eggs for movie fans, from Huey Lewis call-outs to the inner thoughts of Einstein (the dog). By the time you've finished reading, you'll be convinced that Shakespeare had a time-traveling DeLorean of his own, speeding to our era so he could pen this time-tossed tale.
