Review: The Complete Works of WiIlliam Shakespeare (Abridged)
The Prague Shakespeare Company leaves no stone unturned while plundering the bard’s work for laughs...
The cast and crew handle these quick changes with an apparent ease that belies the exhausting night it must be for everyone behind the scenes. Jared Doreck wheels at various points from a racist Romeo gag, to perfect mock-gravity, into a killer Hammer Slide. Jay DeYonker has the audience laughing uncontrollably with his histrionic, deconstructed Ophelia. Philip Hays also makes a strong showing in Hamlet (set in a malapropist Star Wars universe) as See-Threecio (a mashup of minor characters) dragging an Artoo-et-tu trashcan sidekick. This is the kind of raucous, all out, and just completely bonkers experience that makes for a really entertaining evening. With the play headed in so many directions, seemingly all at once, there are bound to be a few moments that don’t catch everyone, but there is more than enough to thoroughly enjoy in the Prague Shakespeare Company’s Complete Works.
