DRUNK SHAKESPEARE to Offer Late Night Performances this Weekend
Due to popular demand, The Drunk Shakespeare Society has added two special late night performances of DRUNK SHAKESPEARE on Friday, April 11 & Saturday, April 12 at 10PM. For these special performances, the "Drunk Actor" from the 8PM performance will drink again at 10PM, adding an extra layer of drunken debauchery to the late night show. DRUNK SHAKESPEARE, an irreverent and outrageous new theatrical experience is directed by David Hudson, conceived by Scott Griffin & Three Day Hangover (David Hudson, Lori Wolter Hudson and Beth Gardiner) and produced by Scott Griffin.
DRUNK SHAKESPEARE is regularly performed seven nights a week at 8PM at Quinn's Bar Upstairs (356 West 44th Street, 2nd Floor). For tickets and more information, please visit www.DrunkShakespeare.com.
This is a limited engagement through June 8, 2014.
For over four-hundred years, the Drunk Shakespeare Society has been meeting and drinking. And drinking, and doing DRUNK SHAKESPEARE. A self-proclaimed "drinking club with a Shakespeare problem," the membership invites audiences to join them for a meeting in their society lounge. The evening begins with one actor drinking more than a sophisticated amount of alcohol before attempting to lead the cast through a Shakespeare story in sixty minutes. The results are messy, outrageous, and surprising.
DRUNK SHAKESPEARE is performed by a rotating company of actors. The cast includes Lucas Calhoun, Kristin Friedlander, Phil Gillen, Kate Gunther, Josh Hyman, Whit Leyenberger, Christina Liu, Lindsey Hope Pearlman, Louis Sallan and Damiyr Shuford.
The design team for DRUNK SHAKESPEARE includes Maddie Bucci (set design), Caitlin Cisek (costume design) and Gordon Hamilton (composer).
