The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
Willamette Theater Festival kicks off our inaugural Repertory Season with "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)," directed by Leslie Hammond.
"The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" takes on the challenge of covering all 37 of Shakespeare's plays, in only 97 minutes, with only three actors. Sounds completely bonkers, right? And that's what you can expect, in this irreverent, fast-paced romp through the entire opus of the world's greatest playwright. Starring Eric Nepom, Benjamin Sell, and Michael Winder, "Shakespeare (Abridged)" has been described as a "high-speed roller-coaster type condensation of all of Shakespeare's plays, and is not recommended for people with heart ailments, bladder problems, inner-ear disorders and/or people inclined to motion sickness" and may or may not suffer from a few wigs, explosions, and other natural disasters. Created by the esteemed Reduced Shakespeare Company, this show has been entertaining Shakespeare friends and foes for over 20 years.
"Shakespeare (Abridged)" runs in repertory with "The Tempest," directed by Dan Stone. Ticket information for "The Tempest" is here: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/407835.
Tickets are $15. Or if you're brave enough, we encourage you to experience both shows with our 2 for $25 offer!
