This thing is awesome. Richard's one of my favorite characters.

Y'know, I thought it was the Queen of Hearts who came up with "Off with her head!" But I should've known, it was Richard. He says it at least twice.

On the other hand, I assumed that "Heads will roll" was from Shakespeare; it sounds like the kind of thing he'd say. But apparently it was actually Hitler, of all people. Who knew?

No, you're right: I don't have much to say about Richard III. I love it, it's awesome.

Alex I love that this edition is "by Ian McKellen." It's why I chose it.

I'd forgotten how totally awesome the opening soliloquy by Richard is.
