Photo Flash: Two Casts Bring COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) to Playhouse 1960
Shakespeare may be turning in his grave, but the show that's become a cult classic contains all 37 plays (plus sonnets) in just 97 minutes. Scroll down for a look at two casts in action in COMPLETE WORKS OF William Shakespeare (ABRIDGED) at Playhouse 1960!
As the comedies aren't anywhere near as funny as the tragedies, all sixteen have been condensed into 'Four Weddings and a Transvestite', the history plays are transformed into a game of American football, Othello is performed in rap and Titus Androncius becomes a TV cookery programme. For the finale, Hamlet is staged first as a psychological exploration of Hamlet's Ego and Ophelia's Id, then performed in a matter of minutes and, for the finale, performed backwards. For lovers of Shakespeare everywhere.
Performs four weekends with two different casts! Kacie Adams, Melissa Huckabay and Helen Rios will be performing the first two weekends! May 5-13 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM. Nicholas Garelick, Bryan Maynard and Jonathan Moonen will perform the closing two weekends! May 19-27 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM.
Directed by Christine Weems. Stage managed by RaMina Mirmortazavi (for the ladies) and Jason Jonathan Rivas (for the gentlemen).
