Description | Characters | Author(s)
: Acting Edition
"A joyous words-and-music anthology in loving mockery of the Bard…Shakespeare has been raped, pillaged, plundered, misquoted, misunderstood, edited, rewritten, bowdlerized, rubbished, parodied, lampooned and generally subjected to every indignity. He now makes his belated West End debut as a song-and-dance man but miraculously manages to retain his dignity in the irrepressible musical production by the Royal Shakespeare Company." (International Herald Tribune) This sparkling entertainment comprises the finest comic writing inspired by Shakespeare. As well as classic songs and sketches by such well-known names as Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Tom Lehrer and the Beyond the Fringe team, it also features specially written material by the best modern revue writers. "And what's remarkable about the whole evening is that beyond the often irreverent laughter there are frequent glimpses of Shakespeare's matchless beauty and depth of feeling." (The Daily Telegraph) The Shakespeare Revue was first presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon. Following a sell-out run, it transferred to the West End where it won great critical acclaim. "A rave revue." (Daily Telegraph) "Scintillatingly funny." (Sunday Times) "Absolute bliss." (The TImes) "A comic cocktail." (Evening Standard) One simple set.
