News   Shakespeare (abridged) Will Play New Victory Theater in March; Casting Announced
 
The Reduced Shakespeare Company will present an updated version of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) at the New Victory Theater beginning March 5.

The three-actor production, featuring Reed Martin, Matt Rippy and Austin Tichenor, will run through March 14.

The work, according to press notes, "takes audiences through raucous, fast-paced parodies of Shakespeare’s 37 plays in an astounding 100 minutes or less. This irreverent romp through The Bard’s canon begins with a send-up of Romeo and Juliet, followed by a Titus Andronicus cooking show, and along the way, a rap version of Othello (Othello raps that he left Desdemona ('all alone-a, didn’t telephone-a.'), and a one-minute version of Hamlet."

Reduced Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare (abridged) ran for nine years in London and was broadcast on PBS. They have also created The Complete History of America (abridged) and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged).

For tickets call (646) 223-3010. The New Victory is located at 209 West 42nd Street, between Broadway and 8th Avenues.
