All the World’s a Stage…

Jul 20, 2012

Ever feel daunted by the sheer heft of a book of Shakespeare? Never fear, fine people, the wacky comic masters at Metamorphosis Theatre Company have streamlined the canon. Opening tomorrow night, July 21, at Fremont Centre Theatre, The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) offers a madcap, family-friendly rendition of the bard’s tragedies, histories, comedies, sonnets and as well as numerous cool wigs, kooky accents and costume changes all in under 90 minutes!

I had a chance to sneak a peek at rehearsal earlier in the week and the bard was right: brevity is the soul of wit. Shakespeare’s masterpieces are taken to hilarious extremes by these cross-dressing, vaudeville hooligans. I don’t say this very often but don’t miss this one, folks.
The show runs weekends through August 12. (SPARC members, check your email for a special discount code for tickets!) Click here for more details.
