Shakespeare and More Set for the Alley Theater, Nov 2013
We know what we're thankful for - fun, exciting theater. So we're bringing a lot of it to the Alley in November, with as many character as possible with "Three Heroes Walk Into a Bar" and "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)."
First: we know what the people want - they want their theater exciting, loud, and ridiculously brief. So we're presenting three of our fastest, most exciting and most popular shows, all in one night. Watch as the Dread Pirate Robert, Flash Gordon and Commando Cody save the kingdom, the country and the world when "Three Heroes Walk Into a Bar!"
The Alley is proud to bring back the "Cliffnotes of Insanity" 30-minute edition of The Princess Bride, an audience favorite from August's Princess Bride Experience. "Cliffnotes" leads off each night at 8 pm. We're happy to bring late night stalwarts Flash and Cody to prime time for a whole new audience, with Cody at 9 pm and Flash at 10 pm. And we're pricing them for whatever combination you want to see then in: $10 for one show, $15 for two, $17 for all three. Don't miss the perfect trifecta of alternative pop culture theater as Three Heroes Walk Into a Bar!
Second: it's as much Shakespeare as you can handle - as only the Alley can do it. Joey Arena, Scott Davis and J.P. Lebangood team up to bring you nearly all of Shakespeare's plays and characters in 2 short acts in the wildly popular "The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)!"
