The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged. The bawdy and irreverent script by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield takes us through a fast-paced romp of 37 of the Bard's best plays, forcing the trio of actors to jump from role to role as they plow through Romeo and Juliet, Titus Andronicus (as a cooking show, no less) and the rap-tastic Othello.
