More Information


Join Shady Shakespeare for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield. (They made us say that!) We proudly present the highly entertaining, highly irreverent, and slightly insane 97 minute comic tour de force that has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. Called “Pithier than Python” and “Irresistible” by the New York Times, “Stupendous, anchorless joy” by the Times, and “Maybe the goofiest thing I’ve ever seen, you’re telling me three grown men wrote this?” by people like your mom. 

We at Shady Shakespeare pride ourselves on providing entertainment for the entire family. Due to graphic content inherent in many of Shakespeare’s works, we recommend parents familiarize themselves with the plays and determine if they are appropriate for your particular child. To assist parents we have provided a rating system for our productions based on the popular rating system for video gaming. 

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is rated T for Teen due to mildly crass humor and a bit of colorful language. Parental discretion is advised for theatregoers under 13. General discretion is advised for theatregoers with weak bladder control.
