Re: old english accent was closer to American southern accent
Yeah, everybody knows Shakespeare sounds best in the original Klingon.
To be honest, I would like to hear Shakespeare spoken in an eastern Kentucky accent.
Well, go see a production at Eastern Kentucky or UK or Berea then.
Lincoln Memorial right across the border in northeast TN would probably work too. Or support local theatre if you're from around there.
