The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Shakespeare Reduced

Cristalle was a little grumpy when we trooped into the theater; she didn’t like our first row seats. We would have to crane our necks to look up the stage, she groused, and we can’t get a good view of the whole stage.

It was apparent that she was wrong as soon as the performance started. It was a small intimate setting, three performers, much audience interaction. By that I meant that the actors actually jumped down the stage, ran up to Peirui and Cristalle, hugged them, and dragged Cristalle up to stage for her debut role in Ophelia. Great fun!

I was laughing so much and so hard that I started coughing again. Now this is good theater! Not just the usual bag of cheap tricks and lame slapstick jokes, but truly excellent and intelligent and witty scripting and dialogue! What a refreshing change.

Cristalle was one happy girl when she left the theater, having gotten a hug, her 5 minutes of theater fame, a motley but bright pink bunch of flowers, and a picture with the three actors. 😀

  1. Haha, I attended the one in London’s Piccadily Circus and got front-ish row seats too. My friend, who came late, was also whisked onto stage to play a “damsel” as they were just on the hunt for one when she came looking for her seat. Imagine her shock.
