Could have done without the gay acting (the 1st kiss was in character - the 2nd etc. was out of line).

Other than that, it was a great show. Very humorous, very active, and a great way to start the weekend.

Very funny and creative!
But be careful about sitting in the front row (possible splash zone)

Cofee maker broke, so bring your own Starbucks.

Great show with some audience participation. No Shakespeare knowledge necessary. Break neck speed comedy done well.

Quotes & Highlights

“The performances are all top-notch and outrageously uninhibited…the audience gets its money’s worth.” —Backstage West


By popular demand The Maverick is bringing back for the third time The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED). Theater-goers will once again enjoy a tumultuous rollercoaster tribute to the immortal bard, Shakespeare. As three actors take on the overwhelming task of performing 37 plays and 154 sonnets in under two hours, illuminating the world of Shakespeare through a unique blend of madcap humor that includes everything from puns and pratfalls to elaborate sight gags of football, swordplay and hip-hop music. Irreverent and hilarious, this comedy sensation keeps delighting audiences and critics.

The entire show is staged in front of a two story tall William Shakespeare head. Performed on the Maverick’s Cabaret Stage; audiences will find themselves knee deep in all the action.
