Reduced Shakespeare Company: The Complete History of America (abridged): Election Edition!
Enjoy a comedic romp through 600 years of American history in just 90 minutes as this trio of comedians turns their satirical wit to the U.S. election process. Coming at the height of election season, this rollercoaster ride through our country's glorious and messy past reminds audiences of what makes America great... our ability to enjoy a good laugh. Since its original long-running hit show, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), the Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC) has taken on many other topics, all abridged and every bit as hilarious. In this production, RSC irreverently portrays American giants from Lincoln to Lewis and Clark, tackles the controversies of our history, and manifests our destiny into a rapid and ridiculous retelling of history from sea to shining sea. "What the 'Daily Show' might be like if it were hosted by the Marx Brothers." (Boston Herald)
