The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Shakespeare Scholar Abridged Shakespesre


All we could say was 'wow!' Audiences loved the show. The actors loved doing it. And we loved watching the audiences literally rolling in the aisles watching the actors doing their thing. And their thing was really, really funny.






Ophelia Abridged Shakespeare




From a flirty vomiting Juliet, to a vomiting Cleopatra with a great asp-death, to a dazed and also vomiting Ophelia, Darren Bridgett won laughs and stole hearts – while proving himself to be the master of the perfect ad lib. Lucas McClure was a dashing Romeo, collecting phone numbers from all the cute young girls in the audience. And David Berkson was the perfect overly intense Hamlet overwhelmed by life, death and the recipe for guacamole.

Romeo and Juliet Abridged Shakespeare styleOff-stage kudos go to a design team who assembled the oft abused costumes and props, to the running crew who kept the dozens of quick changes looking seamless and relaxed, and to director Robert Currier who has never shied away from a cheap joke, a goofy sound cue or anything funny bordering on bad taste. And the grand result: Wow!

From the Playbill:
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is perhaps the most successful original piece of theatre ever created in Marin County. First performed at the Novato Renaissance Faire in 1981, it has continued to be updated by the Reduced Shakespeare Company and enjoyed by audiences all over the U.S. and in London as three guys try to perform all of Shakespeare in under two hours with hilarious results.
