About this show

Mr. Shakespeare & Mr. Porter turns the Bard of Avon's most famous plays into hilarious 30 minute mini-musicals featuring songs (both well-known and obscure) from one of Broadway's wittiest tunesmiths. Among the hi-jinks: Macbeth and Lady Macbeth talk about userping the throne and how they're going to murder Duncan and then break into "You're a Bad Influence On Me" (from Red, Hot and Blue); after the tortured Hamlet kills Polonius, he and Gertrude sing "Let's Misbehave;" the jailed and miserable Claudio in "Measure for Measure" musically tells us "Don't Fence Me In." The production features two different evenings of mini-musicals: Volume 1 (Hamlet, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream) runs from November 13th through the 23rd; Volume 2 (Measure for Measure, Richard III and A Midsummer Night's Dream) runs from December 4th-December 21st.
