Over the weekend, Sir Patrick Stewart, a legendary screen actor who was also a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company for over 15 years, decided to share a video of himself reciting an old classic: Shakespeare’s Sonnet 116!
Just because theaters are shut down for a while, doesn’t mean you can’t get your Shakespeare fix!
