The Reduced Shakespeare Company Presents: “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” (2001) – reviewed by George

The Company is “Reduced” because there are only three men on stage, and these three guys (Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor) have more energy than a whole season of NFL action. They are amazing. I don’t know why … Continue reading
