In a mere hour and a half, this play amusingly speeds through all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays. This play combines Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies to create an entirely unique play that will have watchers doubled over from laughter. This play differs from other Shakespeare performances due to the fact that it possesses a certain element of whimsy. James Alexander Bond, director of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” states that this play “is both reverent of Shakespeare but it is also light and playful.”
Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield form a humorous trio to perform this play. Bond traveled all the way from New York to direct this performance and is eager with anticipation to see it performed this weekend. Bond explains that “conceptually this should feel like three guys got together for the very first time to do this amazing feat of all Shakespeare in one performance when in truth we’ve been rehearsing for a few weeks.”
The Today Show proclaims, “If you like Shakespeare, you’ll love this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!” So this weekend, Richmond Shakespeare lovers and non-lovers alike should head to the Henley Street Theater to view this free performance of Shakespeare’s 37 plays combined into one roller-coaster ride of action and amusement. The Henley Street Theater is located at the Dogwood Dell Amphitheater, 6000 South Boulevard. Be sure to prepare for the weather, as the theater is an outdoor theater.
