Storyline

Three guys, one dead playwright, and 37 plays, all in under two hours. In this universally acclaimed theater experience, Adam Long (one of the troupe's founding members), Reed Marin, and Austin Tichenor manage to compress the complete works of Shakespeare into about an hour and 40 minutes of high-speed over-the-top hilarity. Knowledge about Shakespeare's works is helpful, but not at all necessary. All that is needed is time enough to watch and someone to dial 911 in case you pass out from laughing so much.

Quotes

Austin Tichenor: I was thinking what we could do is a quick, sort of improvised version of Troilus and Cressida based on this chapter.
Reed Martin: Yeah we could do an interpretive dance, performance art version!
Adam Long: Performance art, I love performance art it's so... pretentious! We could do a piece that uses the text of Troilus and Cressida as like a jumping-off point to explore deeper themes, you know, like the transient nature of life and the mythology involved in the arising and dissipation of forms.
Reed Martin: Yeah, get some props!

Memorize it Quote it Perform it
29 October 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film in my drama class a few years ago. It was cruel of the teacher to break up the showing, just a little bit each day. This is one that you can watch over and over again and still fall out of your chair laughing. Memorize it, quote it, perform it. It doesn't get any better than this.
