Tony Award winners Bernadette Peters, Joanna Gleason and the rest of the original Broadway cast weave their magic spell over you in Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece, directed by James Lapine, a seamless fusion of fairy tale characters and what happens after "happily ever after."

Macbeth - Shakespeare's Globe Theatre On-Screen (2 DVD set)
Manufacturer: Bayview Entertainment
''A cracking directorial debut by Eve Best'' (The Telegraph) guides this dark and powerful tragedy about ambition, murder, guilt and remorse. An effective and stirring score by Olly Fox accompanies double-Olivier Award winner Samantha Spiro as Lady Macbeth: ''a bundle of ambitious energy turning into a frenzied madwoman behind closed castle doors who finally collapses into a sorry wreck of herself as she goes completely mad'' (Sunday Express). ''Miraculously, the play worked its dark incantatory spell. The chief reason for this was the superb fresh-minted performances of Joseph Millson and Samantha Spiro as the Macbeths'' (The Telegraph). This production was captured in High Definition and surround sound at the Globe Theatre's faithful reconstruction on the banks of the Thames, which has been called ''a theatrical heaven'' by the Sunday Express.
The Tempest - Shakespeare's Globe Theatre on - Screen
Manufacturer: Bayview Entertainment
Roger Allam â€“ â€œthis most versatile and humane of actorsâ€¦in fine form hereâ€ â€“ delivers a magnificent performance as Prospero in this production captured in High Definition and surround sound at the faithful reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre on the banks of the Thames (which has been called â€œa theatrical heavenâ€ by the Sunday Express). Probably the last play that Shakespeare wrote alone, The Tempest is set on a remote island where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using skillful manipulation and a conjured-up storm. This delightful production â€œmemorably captures the humor, the enchantment and the tantalizing sense of mystery of Shakespeareâ€™s last masterpiece.â€ (The Telegraph). Also starring Jason Baugham, Jesse Buckley, Sam Cox, and Pip Donaghy.
