The Com­plete Works of Wil­liam Shake­speare (abridged) [re­vised]

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - ON STAGE -

Three ac­tors per­form all 37 of the Bard’s plays in about 97 min­utes in this show be­ing staged by Boca Ra­ton’s Evening Star Pro­duc­tions. The com­edy was writ­ten by the Cal­i­for­nia-based Re­duced Shake­speare Com­pany, was first per­formed at the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val Fringe in the late 1980s and ran for nine years in Lon­don’s West End. The script re­cently was up­dated for the 21st cen­tury — hence the brack­eted “re­vised” — but re­tained its sig­na­ture per­for­mance of “Ham­let” in 43 sec­onds … and then per­formed it in re­verse in 42 sec­onds. Fri­day through June 26; 8 p.m. Fri­days and Satur­days; 2 p.m. Sun­days Sol The­atre, 3333 North Fed­eral High­way, Boca Ra­ton $15 ($10 for stu­dents) 561-447-8829 or EveningStarPro­duc­tions.org
