Subject: Reduced Shakespeare at the Folger
Alert to all Washington, DC-area SHAKSPEReans: the Reduced Shakespeare Company
comes to the Folger Theater April 17-23. This is unquestionably the funniest
Bard parody I've ever seen, and possibly the funniest live theater of any kind.
The "Reduced" in their name means that they perform the entire corpus in two
acts with three actors. And they do it justice. If you go, be sure to clap
loud & long, because the "encores" alone are almost worth the price of
Call the Folger at 202-544-7077 for tickets & showtimes.
