The Complete Works by William Shakespeare (Abridged)

by Melinda Menard

This summer we are putting on a really great production.  It is called “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).”   To give you a bit of background on this show – Can three actors really cover all 37 Shakespeare plays in 97 minutes? This fast-fired comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare’s plays (plus the sonnets!) with only three performers in two acts. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play. Clever use of some unusual costumes also adds to the fun and laughter.

Past reviews of the show have said:

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”-The Today Show

 Pithier than Python. Irresistible.” -New York Times

 “Absolutely hilarious. Must be seen to be believed.”-Los Angeles Herald Tribune

 “Among the wittiest takeoffs on Shakespeare…Splendid!” -Shakespeare Quarterly
