Season 21, Episode 8 Much Ado About Something

First Aired: January 2, 2003

Rubbo is a partisan of Christopher Marlowe, and he rounds up a number of Marlowe-friendly experts to make the case for him---and foes to debunk it.

The better-educated Marlowe provided “the learning and great themes,” he says, “and Shakespeare the heart and soul of Merrie England.”
