2016 WaldenPlay Update: READ the scholarly review of the Walden play published in the January 2016 issue of the “Journal for the Center of Interdisciplinary Teaching and Learning” at BOSTON UNIVERSITY by William Christopher Brown, PH.D: click here.

"Walden: The Ballad of Thoreau should be a requirement in American classrooms, a prelude to a serious study of the Transcendentalist movement that we all could use a great good deal more immersion in. Kids badly need this element in their lives, and, to accommodate the exposure, the two-disc set also includes a great little lesson plan that strongly encourages analysis and critical thinking."
Mark S. Tucker, FAME reviewer
