The musical tells the bawdy story of Pseudolus, a crafty slave, struggling to win the hand of a beautiful, but slow-witted, courtesan Philia for his young master, Hero, in exchange for freedom. The plot twists and turns with slamming doors, cases of mistaken identity and satirical comments on social class.

Can only three actors really cover 37 Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the plays of William Shakespeare (plus the sonnets!) using reenactments and audience participation. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [Revised] is produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing Inc., NYC
