CWWS_shakespeare tavernFrom August 14-24, 2014, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) will be at the Shakespeare Tavern. I’ve seen it a couple of times, and it’s a fun night at the theatre.

Per the summary: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is an “irreverent, hilarious, high-speed romp through all 37 of the Bard’s plays (and 154 sonnets) in two hours. Othello goes Hip-Hop, Titus Andronicus a cooking show, and all the Histories are performed as a football game.” And it’s all performed by three actors. FYI–the show contains adult humor & language.

If you haven’t been to Shakespeare Tavern before, a tip: It’s an intimate venue, so you really can’t go wrong with any seats–I’ve tried all three price levels (Main Floor, Box Seats, Balcony), & I’ve had a good view of the production from each vantage point. The food is quite good, too–the apple crisp served during intermission was worth every calorie. Yum.

Want to go? You’ve got a few ways to save on tickets:

  • Thursday, August 14 & 21, are general-admission nights, and tickets are $20 each.If you’re picky about where you sit, get there early, as it’s first-come, first-seated. Bonus: You’ll get the best deals on Thursdays & Sundays during the run. Plus, students & educators save $5 on tickets (excluding Saturday nights), and seniors (age 65+) & military save $3 off the adult ticket price.
  • And while they last, you can get discount tickets to most performances of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare on AtlanTIX.

FYI re: parking: They’re enforcing the meters in front of the theatre, so make sure pay if you use them. Plus, you can park in the Emory parking deck across the street. If you give them your ticket stub when you leave, parking should be $5.

Shakespeare Tavern is located at 499 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 404-879-5299.
