Upcoming: The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged), Way Off Broadway Community Players, Leander, May 28 - June 6
Received on May 21 from WOBCP, Leander:
Way Off Broadway Community Players
continues our 12th season with
the manic comedy
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged]
by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Borgeson, directed by Lynda Davidson.
Performances will run Fridays and Saturdays from May 29th through June 6th at 8 PM. There will be one Sunday performance on May 31st at 3 PM.
NOTE: The May 30th performance will be a free performance at Robin Bledsoe Park on Bagdad Road in Leander. There is no seating at the amphitheater, but they do have a nice lawn. You may bring lawn chairs or blankets, but many folks sit on the ground.
Three guys, one dead playwright, and 37 plays, all in under two hours. A mix of pratfalls, puns, willful misreadings of names and dialogue, clunky female impersonations, clean-cut ribaldry, and broad burlesque. In this universally acclaimed theater experience, three zany guys manage to compress the complete works of Shakespeare into a couple of hours of high-speed over-the-top hilarity.
