To Go or Not to Go? Go.

Get thee to a nunnery, said William Shakespeare in Hamlet. As a scholar would point out, what Will really meant was, “You belong in a whorehouse.” Hardly tame material, yet sometimes it takes a modern twist to breathe life back into the Ol’ English. Enter writer Vanessa Garcia and her collective, the Krane, the folks behind a night of bawdy, Shakespeare-inspired monologues called Shake It Up. Prompted by lines from the Bard, the writers — many of whom hail from the venerable MFA program at the University of Miami — have crafted soliloquies that would get them thrown out of English class but which fit right in at the edgy and downright stylish confines of AE District. To wit, your $15 ticket gets you access to an open bar this Friday night from 6:30 till they kick your drunk ass out. The show begins at 8. For advance tickets, call Vanessa at 305-450-9931 or visit thekrane.com.
Fri., Nov. 20, 6:30 p.m., 2009
