Think Shakespeare is a snooze? Well, there would be no West Side Story without Romeo and Juliet. There would not be a Lion King without Hamlet.
The upcoming theater production, a parody of the plays of William Shakespeare, presents all of the works of the Bard comically shortened or merged together in just ninety minutes with only three actors – all male.
Men played women in Shakespeare’s time, as they do in The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), albeit not gracefully. In this two-act play, the audience will meet Romeo and Juliet, Titus Andronicus, Othello, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, and Anthony and Cleopatra, as they have NEVER seen them before. Actors talk directly to the audience, often encouraging robust participation.
For a preview of the mayhem that will take place on November 22, 23, and 24, please watch the video here.
Bloody Titus Andronicus as a cooking show? Stay tuned!
