Mastering Shakespeare is the first book about acting Shakespeare — to emerge from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.

"Scott Kaiser knows more about Shakespearean text and — how an American actor can wrap his or her mouth, mind and heart around — it than anyone I ever met," Appel said. "This book is an invaluable guide — for the teacher and the actor in how to master the 'secret language' of — Shakespeare."
