Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday with an irreverent, hilarious, high-speed romp through all 37 of the Bard's plays (and 154 sonnets) in two hours, all performed by three actors. Join these three madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s work in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. The cast will celebrate with birthday cake and balloons for the Bard in the lobby after the performance. “Stupendous, Anchorless Joy!” - The Times of London
