The highly acclaimed comedy, which received standing ovations as part of the Penny Seats summer season in Ann Arbor’s West Park, will be encored as ourĀ first show of the 2015-2016 season.

Shakespeare (Abridged) is a hysterical romp through the works of the great Bard, with only three performers presenting all 37 plays in less than two hours. First produced in London by the Reduced Shakespeare Company, it ran for nine years before taking the record as the longest running comedy in the West End. Called one of the funniest plays of all time and “pithier than Python,” by The New York Times, the show got this review from The Today Show, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll love this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show.”

The production showcases the talents of Matt Cameron and Leanne Young of South Lyon and Artun Kircali of Ann Arbor. It was directed by Anne Levy of Brighton for both The Penny Seats Theatre and The Phoenix Players.
