Host Robert Siegel takes us to Staunton, Virginia, a town nestled at the feet of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley, where carpenters are recreating a landmark from Elizabethan London. The Blackfriars Theatre was home to many of William Shakespeare's plays. Now the Shenandoah Shakespeare Express theater company will perform at its own Blackfriars Playhouse.
