The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged)
Thursday, March 2, 2017 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this classic farce, the show has been thoroughly revised to bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences. The cultural touchstone that is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London's second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre.

This show is one of the world's most frequently produced plays, and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare's plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it's full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike. “Stupendous, anchorless joy!” – The Times (London)
