Sixteen comedies, eleven tragedies, seven histories and assorted sonnets and poems make up this whirlwind Shakespeare-arama, performed by three frenzied actors in tights (with the help of audience members) in under 2 hours! This outrageous night of comedy includes Titus Andronicus performed as a cooking show, Othello done as rap, and Hamlet performed backwards, forwards, and sideways, plus lots more. This wildly raucous romp will leave you helpless with laughter.

Directed by Drama Desk Award Nominee Tom Ridgely

"Irreverent and hilarious. Go check it out!"
