The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged):
Fridays 7pm Sundays 2pm 7pm
Imagine William Shakespeare on a crazy bar crawl in Las Vegas with the Marx Brothers. Mix in some anarchistic improvisations and you are on your merry way to the silly soul of this play. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) was first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1987 to glowing reviews and roaring crowds. It would go on to run at the Criterion Theatre in London for nine years. We will be showing this hilarious send up in our next season.
All of your favorite comic characters breeze onto the stage to blow away the audience in spoofs, sketches, and scenes juxtaposed upside and and inside out. Even the tragedies are not spared being speared by satire. The script has the shortest version of Hamlet running 43 seconds and the fastest Hamlet in reverse at 42 seconds! This show is Shakespeare in a word salad with a side of scenic delight.
