If you think Shakespeare is too stuffy, the Austin based Magnificent Bastards will disabuse you of that notion. They are performing the Shit-faced Shakespeare® production of Much Ado About Nothing at The North Door in Austin, Texas on October 6 and October 7 at the Spider House Ballroom.
According to their website, “Shit-faced Shakespeare® is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Outrageous raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 200,000 eager theatre goers across the UK and US.”
“Shit-Faced Shakespeare® seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist – reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly.”
