Imagine that Robin Williams and Jim Carey spawned a love child that did one hell of a Waylon Smithers impression and you get a good idea of Miller's act. The show is fast-paced, with Miller acting the entire play by himself while inhabiting the voices of 60 Simpson characters. By Miller's estimation, the play retains about 85 percent Shakespeare -- though cleverly butchered to include other pop references and asides that fans of the show will appreciate.
What started as a backstage joke over a decade ago (while Miller toiled in the minor role of "Murderer No. 2" in a more traditional interpretation of the play) eventually led to a full stage production in 1996. Now, nearly nine years later, Miller has performed to sold-out venues in England, Australia, and the States. The show has drawn praise from both Simpsons fans and Shakespeare buffs. It's also gotten favorable reviews from The Simpsons cast; its creator, Matt Groening; and, maybe more surprisingly, many Shakespearean scholars.
