No knowledge of Shakespeare is necessary to enjoy this madcap comedy, in which three actors set out to perform all 37 of the playwright's works (plus his sonnets!) in 90 minutes, with hilarious results. These theater classics will be forced to undergo some distinct changes, of course. Titus Andronicus becomes a cooking show, Othello is summarized in rap, Macbeth turns from tragedy into broad comedy and Hamlet is pared down to less than a minute. This 413 Project production -- filled with improvisation and spontaneous conversation about pop culture -- can be enjoyed at The Grand Tea Room in Escondido. Your ticket includes complimentary water and Shakespeare themed cookies.
This show is considered PG and contains some adult humor.
