The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield

Sunday, May 4, 2008
4.0
The show was thoroughly enjoyable, with many laughs, clever jokes, and pop culture references galore. The audience participation was wonderfully achieved with talented improvisors working with what they were given and turning it to gold. Beautifully enacted with few weak points, this show was well worth the $15 price tag.
My initial feelings after seeing this show left me a little dry. The main problem I had with The show was the pacing. There were times when it felt like they should be rushing but were dragging their feet instead. Some jokes were missed in the sense that the audience simply didn't understand, but anyone with even the vaguest knowledge of Shakespeare will die in their seats as they see the fun and interesting way the complete works are displayed. My final issue was the set. painted like a field I felt it was distracting and didn't add to the experience in any way.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable show that's strengths easily overwhelm the weaknesses.
