Enjoyable show

I loved "Slings & Arrows" and enjoyed "Will," so I listened with interest to your take on these productions. Your relative access provided a cool perspective on them which I appreciated. I've enjoyed the reductions I've encountered in the past, and that energy translates perfectly to this truly enjoyable podcast. You should know this review used to be 20 stars and several paragraphs long; that's how inspiring I've found the RSC's approach to be. Yay, you guys!

Long-time listener, first-time reviewer

I've been listening since Episode 1, a few years after having seen Austin perform All the Great Books at the Kennedy Center. The podcast has never failed to be both entertaining and informative, whether it's a slice of life from the world of live theater, memories of what has inspired their performances, or the wide range of interviews. Austin's dedication to putting out a quality production week after week for so many years is a testament to his devotion to the fans of the Reduced Shakespeare Company. The only slip in over 10 years was more of a missed opportunity. Episode 576, "Captain Picard's Autobiography", should have been held for one more week -- so that it could conclude with "577/1701 of the RSC", for NCC-1701E, of course. Keep up the amazing work!

For all theater nerds

If you are a fan of theater, subscribe now. Yes, there are many light-hearted discussions with a Shakespearean theme, but the essence of this podcast is the theater. The interviews with playwrites, actors, directors, etc. are entertaining and informative.
