Testimonials:

“Glenn’s lecture/discussions on ‘Shakespeare in His Time’ were extraordinarily effective: enlightening, thought provoking, and fun! So if you’re new to Shakespeare or a lifelong fan, you’ll find these sessions very worthwhile.” – Dr. June Compton, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival summer dramaturg/former Roosevelt University professor

“I enjoyed your classes.  Thanks for making Shakespeare and his plays approachable to me.” – Denise Lundin about Shakespeare in his Time

“The theme – Shakespeare In His Time – couldn’t have been more apt. My experiences have led me to interact with the plays in some specific ways, but I had not engaged them before through this lens. Your theme allowed me the chance to approach the plays, and Shakespeare himself, in a fresh way.” -Todd Barnell, Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival Patron
