The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Performed by Orfeo Group

Presented by CWT in partnership with
Friends of the Charlestown Navy Yard

Directed by Steven Barkhimer and featuring the Orfeo Talents of Daniel Berger-Jones, Gabriel Kuttner and Risher Reddick

WARNING: This show is a non-stop roller-coaster ride through the Shakespearean canon. We ask that audience members keep all body parts inside the ride at all times, secure all loose articles, clothing, and long hair, remain seated in an upright position and hold on until the ride comes to an oh-so-Shakespearean full stop.

CRITICS LOVE The Complete Works:

"Wowsa."
- Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe

"...[the actors'] individual qualities combine to equal one terrific troupe...Berger-Jones has matinee idol good looks, Kuttner rivals Buster Keaton in the deadpan department, and Reddick approaches John Belushi-type mania. In addition to their comic skills, they are all adept at reciting the Shakespearean language."
- Nancy Grossman, broadwayworld.com

"It's the actors - and some snappy directing from Steven Barkhimer - that make this "Complete Works" such a good time. Berger-Jones, Kuttner and Reddick project the shared mischievous glee of 10-year-olds. It's fun to see these three, all of whom usually perform dramatic theater, let loose in a comedy."
- Jenna Scherer, Boston Herald

"[The play] can range from mildly amusing to snort-soda-out-your-nose hilarious. Orfeo's version, staged in a picnic-friendly fashion on the outdoor stage normally occupied by the Publick Theatre, hits the high end of that scale. And I have the root beer stains from my son's beverage to prove it"
- Louise Kennedy, Boston Globe

Bring a picnic and a beach chair and get in on the fun at this hilarious, rowdy rendition of the Bard's works!
