 About the Performance
Got Shakespeare? – This one-act play is a madcap comedy of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters intertwined into a single play, written by company director Dani Loebs.

There’s something rotten in the state of Denmark,or at least in the world of Shakespeare, when the murderers from Richard lll decide not to kill Clarence, when Juliet is convinced that Romeo is not dead but on a pleasant vacation in Scotland, and when Hamlet has turned into a bad poet cranking out lyrics to new songs.

Scheduled performances of Got Shakespeare? are as follows:

Friday, July 31, 2009
Saturday, Aug 1, 2009
Sunday, Aug 2, 2009
Friday, Aug 7, 2009
Saturday, Aug 8, 2009
Sunday, Aug 9, 2009
