A Playhouse on Park favorite, returns for the summer of 2017! The cultural touchstone that is THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) features all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. To celebrate the 20th anniversary two of its original writer/performers (Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield) thoroughly revised the show to bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
"A madcap condensation that features nonstop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most skeptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself … would approve." — Daily Variety
"If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!"— The Today Show
"The funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime." — The Montreal Gazette
