The unholy drought is over. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) returns (now [revised]) after a (much too long) 14-year absence from our stage. The original “Bad Boys of Abridgment” squished all 37 plays plus a few sonnets to boot into a 90-minute time-lapse performance of Some of the Greatest Theatre of All Time. This season, Jobsite dusts off the Chuck Taylors, dons the doublets and delivers a fair number of pratfalls, terrible puns, mis-readings and madcap capers for this chaotic, comprehensive dash through The Bard’s greatest hits.
