Before Shakespeare wrote plays, he crafted exotic desserts, but quit when his Jello molds shaped as Julius Caesar were deemed "too avant-garde."

The community-supporting Syracuse Shakespeare Festival has produced plays for more than 36,000 soliloquy-savorers since 2003, displaying thespian talent of all types. With this deal, you'll get two tickets to the Festival's rendition of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare—Abridged, the final production of its 2011 Shakespeare-Under-A-Roof series. Side-splitting limelighters Jim Uva, Alan Stillman, and Dan Rowlands perform raucously rapid renditions of every one of Shakespeare's plays—from the silliness of Taming of the Shrew to the Bard's sci-fi thriller Starship Troopers 2— in a frenetic whirlwind of 110 chuckle-packed minutes. Director Nora O'Dea realizes the multiple hyper-satirical takes on Shakespeare's stories, while mysterious masked figure Shillian Wakespeare handles the stage lighting.
