The Drunk Shakespeare Society is celebrating William Shakespeare's 450th birthday all this week at Drunk Shakespeare. For all performances through Saturday, April 26, a free beer is included with the purchase of a $25 ticket, using the code BARDBEER. Drunk Shakespeare is performed at Quinn's Bar Upstairs (356 West 44th Street, 2nd Floor). For tickets and more information, visit www.DrunkShakespeare.com.

DRUNK SHAKESPEARE, an irreverent and outrageous new theatrical experience is directed by David Hudson, conceived by Scott Griffin, David Hudson, Lori Wolter Hudson and Beth Gardiner and produced by Scott Griffin.

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).
