Welcome to Shakespeare and the Players! This site offers you an online exhibit of postcards featuring the American and English actors who performed Shakespeare’s plays during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
When you arrive at the site, you’ll find an introduction menu made of images with a navigation strip above it with more options. I suggest starting on the About page, so you can learn about the project, and then browse the introduction menu. As you mouse over the image menu the images rollover to the label for the section.
After that I suggest clicking on Postcards to browse the exhibit.
This is a really cool way to look back into the history of theater and the performers who brought Shakespeare’s works to life.
