The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield @ Klein Theatre Tickets
Sep 29 @ 2:00 pm
The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield @ Klein Theatre

A company of actors storms the stage and takes on the Bard of Avon—37 plays and 154 sonnets—in a 97-minute madcap romp through the entire canon (but not the one you studied in English class). Fasten your seatbelts and hang on for dear life as you take one of the wildest and goofiest rides in the theatre. The Bard may be rolling in his grave, but you’ll be rolling in the aisles for The Complete Works of Shakespeare, abridged, revised.

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”
—The Today Show

“Wildly funny. Masterful!” —The Los Angeles Times

Tickets will be made available online, over the phone and in person at the Klein Theatre Box Office starting September 5, 2019. The Klein Theatre Box Office is open Monday – Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.

Doubt by John Patrick Shanley
The Bronx, 1964. Suspicions surface at a parochial school about a charismatic young priest’s interest in a Catholic school’s first and only black student. Absent hard proof, Sister Aloysius, the school’s starched and self-assured principal, tries to protect the innocent—but is she doing God’s work or is her certitude actually pride? Doubt is a theatrical masterpiece about faith, ambiguity, and the price of moral conviction.

Amadeus by Peter Shaffer
Professional jealousy and personal crisis drive composer Antonio Salieri to turn from God towards one clear, dark, and menacing goal: destroying the brash young newcomer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A highly fictionalized account of Mozart’s final years and Salieri’s jealous pursuit to ruin one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time, Amadeus is equal parts psychological thriller, insightful biography, and morality tale.

Guys and Dolls by Frank Loesser, Jo Swerling, & Abe Burrows
In this beloved 1950s musical comedy, dice-slinging gamblers, pious missionaries, and glamorous show girls come together for a light-hearted romp through New York. It’s a high stakes game of love as brazen and charming Nathan Detroit bets Sky Masterson $1,000 to woo missionary Sarah Brown. Meanwhile, cabaret singer Adelaide tries to convince Nathan, her fiancé of 14 years, to finally tie the knot. A classic musical, Guys and Dolls features the showstoppers “Luck be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Take Back Your Mink,” and others.

Shear Madness by Paul Pöertner
This unique whodunit takes place in the Shear Madness hairstyling salon and is chock full of up-to-the-minute spontaneous humor driven by some of the zaniest characters you will ever meet. During the course of the play, a murder is committed and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the funniest mystery in the annals of crime. The outcome is never the same in this long-running, laugh ’til you hurt blockbuster comedy. We will arrive at the Kennedy Center with time for you to grab lunch at the KC Café or eat the lunch you bring on the terrace overlooking the Potomac.
