About this show

A Crew of Patches Theatre Company presents The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) (London's longest-running comedy), by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield. The show includes 1637 murders, 656 battles, 375 lewd acts and a couples of fairies. If brevity is the soul of wit, then this show is the wittiest ever written, as three actors hurtle headlong through every play Shakespeare wrote, with interpretations such as "Backwards Hamlet," "The Titus Andronicus Cooking Show," "The Othello Rap" and "A History Football Game." David Blixt directs. FREE DINNER AT BLUE BAYOU (across from the theatre at 3734 N. Southport) FOR REGULAR PRICE TICKET HOLDERS (some restrictions may apply - call 773.325.1700)
