Internationally acclaimed actor and Tony Award winner, Alan Cumming performs Shakespeare's most important and beloved royal speeches, including "To be or not to be", "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow", "Now is the winter of our discontent", "O that this too sullied flesh would melt" and more. All the speeches were personally chosen by Cumming. Michael Boyd adds, "Cumming brings to Shakespeare the lyricism of a genuine singer, the sharp edge of a wicked comic, and the embodied intelligence of a major actor."

"Can't recommend this one"
The speeches need to have the name of the play and scene listed before each track. The listener isn't given any kind of information that would provide a context for what they are listening to.
Not likely. I thought he drifted into overacting on nearly every speech.
No. It is a collection of speeches.
I would recommend Shakespeare's Original Pronunciation instead.
