The Complete Works of Shakespeare

By Mona Shah

Irreverent and hilarious, this comedy sensation will leave you breathless with laughter. "The Complete Works of Shakespeare" is delighting critics and audiences alike with a refreshing blend of madcap humor that includes everything from puns and pratfalls to elaborate sight gags. For the uninitiated and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike, this whirlwind and roller coaster tribute to the immortal bard is enthralling.

Windwood Theatricals brings three actors who boldly address the overwhelming task of performing 154 sonnets and 37 plays in less than two hours. Shakespeare's famous tragedies and comedies are bought to life with hip hop, swordplay, football and rap. Shakespeare (Abridged) is a humorous interpretation of the renowned productions; originally written in 1987 by Daniel Singer, Jess Winfeild and Adam Long, founders of the Reduced Shakespeare Company. Today, it is an international sensation that completes its performances with audiences asking for more.

On September 28, this 400 year old collection of plays will be knotted and twisted to captivate the local modern audience. For more information and tickets, please call (510) 659-6031 or visit www.smithcenterpresents.com.
