What's it about? This three-man troupe perform all of Shakespeare's plays in 90 comedic minutes.
Life is short. The complete works of Shakespeare are long. To the rescue, the three-man comedy troupe known for fast, funny, physical condensations of real serious stuff. They wrap up the bard's outsized oeuvre in 90 roller-coaster, rib-tickling minutes. After warming up with a nothing-is-sacred send-up of Romeo and Juliet, they're off, dispensing with the comedies in one fell swoop (because the tragedies are funnier). You decide after you see Othello as a rap song, Titus Andronicus as a cooking program, and the show's unforgettable finale--Hamlet--told with the help of audience members and lascivious sock puppets.
