Some great belly laughs. Do not need to know much Shakespeare to be in on the joke, but it helps. Great slapstick; wish they diid more of the clown parts since all three are naturals. Couldn't hurt to have a drink with dinner first!

Quotes & Highlights

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll  love this show!” —USA Today* *
“Wildly funny. Masterful!” —Los Angeles Times* *


The play that launched a thousand Reductions!

All 37 Plays in 97 Minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy running 10 years in the West End at the Criterion Theatre – and is now being presented for the first time by the RSC in San Diego! Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. Warning! This show is a high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare’s plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness. The RSC cannot be held responsible for expectant mothers!
