Going to the theater lets you take in dramatic scenes at a safe distance, much like listening to your neighbors argue about how to pronounce "gnocchi." Hide behind the fourth wall with this GrouponLive deal to The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), presented by The Company Theatre at Arneson River Theater.

With numerous stagings across the world, including a record nine-year run at the Criterion Theatre in London, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) pares down the bard's lexicon into a 90-minute whirlwind rife with comedy and lightning-quick costume changes. The trio of Brad Adams, Damian Gillen, and John Chevront tackles Shakespeare's 37 plays with unconventional techniques, recounting the plot of Othello through rap and reimagining Titus Andronicus as the world's bloodiest cooking show. The parodies build to an accelerating series of Hamlet interpretations, which culminates in the cast performing the tragedy backwards. The outdoor amphitheater of the Arneson River Theater recalls the open-air environs of the Globe Theatre itself, as do the cross-dressing actors and audience members hushing the ringtones of their carrier pigeons.
