    How on earth can three men do the impossible: act through Shakespeare’s entire canon of 37 plays in 97 minutes? By summarizing the canon through football plays, rap songs and outrageously condensed, comedy mash-up titles, of course! "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)" hilariously summarizes all of Shakespeare’s plays, using reenactments and audience participation. It is famous for holding the (self-proclaimed) record for the shortest production of Hamlet at 43 seconds. The show entertains and teaches audiences facts about Shakespeare while ensuring them a rollicking good time! 217-523-2787
