"If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!" — The Today Show
"The Complete Works..." is an irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, starring Heather Denardo, Matthew Donnelly & Michael Kane. Expertly stage-managed and teched by Keith Cannady, produced by Palmetto Theater Xperiment and directed by J.W. Rone,
"The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" was born when three inspired, charismatic comics, having honed their pass-the-hat act at Renaissance fairs, premiered their preposterous masterwork at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London's second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is one of the world's most frequently produced plays, and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare's plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it's full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.
