To-night and to-night and to-night only
Thirty-seven plays by one Bill Shakespeare
Abridged into ninety-seven minutes
Of pure sound and fury, signifying
Nothing except one hilarious evening
For you and your mistress who doth protest
Too much: You never take me out, Player.
So out, out to the great Adrienne Arsht
For the extended run of The Complete
Works of Shakespeare, Abridged. Tickets are
Just fifty bucks, and this show is nothing like
The sum of its parts: a graduate course
In old Stratfords bard, dull or even worse,
The winter of our boredoms discontent:
A night of iambic pentameter.
Instead, the Reduced Shakespeare Company
Proves Bill can still glitter even if hes old
They even made the show a category
On that Bible of info, Jeopardy!
And it was the longest-running comedy
In Londons theatrical history,
So it aint much ado about nothing.
So friends, Romans, Miamians, lend them
Your dollars, loose the Bluetooth from your ears.
Show up at 7:30, but first go
To arshtcenter.com for more info.
Shall you hear more, or shall you click at this?
In case you didnt get that just go see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). It will be performed for an extended run this Wednesday through January 18, in the Arshts Studio Theater.
