CONTEMPORARY SHAKESPEARE: Exploring a Living Theatre for the 21st Century, written by Marcus D. Gregio, explores the life and times of William Shakespeare, Elizabethan Theatre, and the future of theatre. This is a book with scholarly, well-researched, information and a manifesto for a living, necessary theatre that must not be overlooked. Those interested in Shakespeare and his time, should own this book. Those who care about the present and future of theatre, must own this book. Few authors, writing on theatre, have the conviction that is evident in the words of Marcus D. Gregio, a leader in contemporary theatre, a visionary, and a scholar for his time. By utilising the power of Shakespeare and Elizabethan Theatre, this book shows how one can end-what the author refers to as-"the crisis" that twenty-first century theatre is in. Contemporary Shakespeare is an exciting, informative, and important book on theatre written with style and with passion. Peter Thomson, author of Shakespeare's Theatre, has called the book "a tidal wave of a manifesto". An engaging, perceptive volume, this notable work has the potential to make a significant difference in the world of theatre... and beyond.
