Shakespeare Snipped

37 plays in 97 minutes? You betcha.

To go, or not to go—that is the question. And the answer, fair reader, is … get your ass up and experience The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)! Okay, so maybe you hated reading the Old Willie’s plays in school, but that’s only because your teacher wasn’t as entertaining as these three guys in tights. Besides, Mrs. Crabbypants couldn’t break down 37 comedies, tragedies, romances, and histories (plus a few sonnets thrown in for good measure) in just 97 minutes. It took her a whole damn semester. Once you experience the performers’ machine-gun delivery and outlandish props, you’ll never subject yourself to Cliff’s Notes again.
