For anyone who could never quite work up the motivation to slog through Ulysses or War and Peace, there's Reduced Shakespeare Company's All The Great Books (Abridged), a zany romp through history's greatest works of literature. From Plato to Proust to Hemingway, no sacred cow goes unscathed. Known for beloved shows like The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and The Complete History of America (Abridged), this "trio of modern Marx Brothers" (Boston Herald) have appeared on PBS and National Public Radio, and are London's longest-running comedy troupe.

A play with a huge heart, not afraid to show emotion, sentiment, after all the essence of life. Fine actors, excellent stage direction, not too loud, not too soft. A happy medium. A show that I highly recommend that is balm to one's soul.
<p>It’s a birthday party nobody will forget! In this engaging comedy, Abuela, the matriarch of a Cuban-exile family living in Miami in 1974, is turning 75. Much-married Maritza and her teenage daughter, Marty, have driven in from Texas. Live-at-home single son, Tio, hopes everything will go smoothly. However, as the punch flows, the sky turns stormy and Eric, the handsome gardener, arrives, the party unravels. Meanwhile, Alexandros, Abuela’s bad-tempered pooch, becomes the catalyst for an emotional meltdown in which closet doors open, truths tumble out and the bonds of family love are reasserted. Alexandros is by the author Sonia Flew, which was staged at The Laguna Playhouse during the 2006-2007 season. </p>
