The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged)!

When: Fri., March 31, 6-9:30 p.m. 2017

The Dinnerbox Series at Little Italy presents The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged!) — a fast-paced parody of William Shakespeare’s plays. London’s longest-running comedy, this 80-minute rhetorical roller coaster soars through all 37 plays, performed by only three actors. Damian Gillen, Schedel Luitjen and Benji Regan of the Company Theatre return to deliver a quick comical condensation of works like Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth and even a rap rendition of Othello. Often calling for improvisation and audience participation, the performance breaks the theatrical barrier of the fourth wall, with constant interaction between the actors and audience. Tickets include snacks, salads and entrees prepared by host venue Little Italy.

Price: $30-$40 (includes dinner)
