The recording entitled The Head that Wears a Crown: Speeches for Royal Men was recorded last month in New York City and features Cumming — who garnered significant praise for his one-man recording of Macbeth — in the roles of several of Shakespeare’s monarchs.

The audiobook is slated for a Spring publication and will be released worldwide by GPRrecords through Naxos. An audio clip of Cumming as Richard III can be found HERE.
