YouTube is awash with audition pieces from hopeful actors showing off their Shakespearean party pieces. This selection of pieces from 2008 has been put together by New York actor Corey Allen, and features selections from Titus Andronicus, Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (plus others, non-Shakespearean), filmed in a cafe complete with background noises. What is compelling about such pieces is not so much the quality or otherwise of the acting, but of the intensity and intimacy of performances delivered in close-up.
