A Really Fast, Funny Trip Through Shakespeare

by The Editors on August 25, 2008


If you haven’t seen it already, you have only five more chances to check out the New Village Arts Theatre’s hilarious production of The Compete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) featuring the world’s fastest performance of Hamlet on record, “clocking in at 43 seconds. We’re thinking we can beat the record,” they say.

The Complete Works of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged) was written by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, and first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1987. Within the span of the evening every single Shakespeare play is covered as well as a nod given to the sonnets.

Shows are free to subscribers and “pay-what-you-can” for everyone else. The show closes on Aug. 21, however, there are still show this Thursday through Saturday night at 8 PM with a matinee on Saturday at 3 PM and Sunday at 2 PM.
