Laurel (one of our members) recommended this play. This is what she had to say, "The Reduced Shakespeare Company does a hilarious version of the complete works of William Shakespeare in 90 minutes. A friend saw this in London (where it's the longest running comedy - 10 years) and raved about it."


The play that launched a thousand Reductions!

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 in the West End at the Criterion Theatre - and is now presenting it for the first time in San Diego! Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare?s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

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!

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?.

?Pithier than Python. Irresistible.? New York Times

?A madcap condensation that features non-stop laughs. Done at a whirlwind pace and with great delight, they are sure to win over even the most skeptical. And there is no doubt that William Shakespeare himself? would approve.? Daily Variety

?If you like Shakespeare, you?ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you?ll love this show!? The Today Show

?Stupendous, anchorless joy!? The London Times

?Wildly funny. Masterful!? Los Angeles Times

?The funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime.? Montreal Gazette

?Shamelessly heretical!? Time Out ? London

?Gloriously, relaxingly funny.? Financial Times

?Shakespeare as it was back in the Bard?s day: bawdy, irreverent, sublimely entertaining.? Miami Herald
