    The 2012 Duke in London-Drama program attended 28 productions including operas, modern dance shows, plays, monologue collections, musicals, and verbatim theatre. Our class paid special attention to Shakespeare, however, as a prolific playwright, particularly in Britain. We saw Richard III at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and as "groundlings"…
