Best show I have seen in years and probably close to how an actual Shakespeare play was performed at the Globe Theater in London during Shakespeare's time. I think you can assume in the old days the ground-lings in the pit were plastered by the...More

Personal: i attended the performance. It was amusing. Social: It was a full audience, most of them drinking, like the cast, most heavily and interacting with one another and the players. Relevant: Despite the low comedy that inevitavly arrises among drunken revelers, the play’s prominent...More

Convinced my wife to try this. She didn't like it - she loved it! Cast and support are amazing. You can't go wrong with this choice.

This is a hilarious take on Shakespeare. One of five actors takes several shots before performing. It is somewhat interactive with the audience, and there isn't a bad seat. Drinks can be purchased throughout the performance. Not for kids or "tweens" - lots of sexual...More

I cannot say enough about this show. The actors were fantastic, the premise is hilarious, and the setting is so unique. It takes place in a small room (up a lot of stairs) that's been transformed into a library with a sunken stage in the...More
