The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised]
DATE: Thursday, Oct. 17, 7pm

TICKETS: starting at $15
Get thee forthwith to witness with thine own eyes the wacky antics of three men in tights as they take on the seemingly impossible task of performing each of Shakespeare’s 37 plays in just 97 minutes.
These theater classics undergo some changes, of course – Titus Andronicus becomes a cooking show, Othello is summarized in rap and Hamlet is pared down to under a minute. But you’re sure to be mightily entertained by the madcap goings-on, which include satire, sight gags, improvisation, audience participation and more! Perhaps even more miraculous, when the curtain finally does come down, you’ll have a general idea of the plot of every comedy, tragedy and history ever written by the Bard.
