This "play" was incredibly disappointing. It was more like a frat house gag show than an effort to actually synthesize Shakespeare's work into one piece. There was great potential in the concept for creating something inventive, suprising, funny,...continued

I found it to be more silly than funny, which is really a shame because I was really looking forward to this play.

Quotes & Highlights

“the funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime” -Montreal Gazette

Description

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 – 10 years at the Criterion Theatre. Praised by the Los Angeles Times as “wildly funny” and by the Montreal Gazette as “the funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime”.

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.
