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