Drunk Shakespeare
Midtown W
The Wall Street Journal

"Drunk Shakespeare weaves improv comedy into Shakespeare's text. One actor in the play is given five shots of alcohol, often whiskey. Then, the thespian can interrupt the show by yelling "Drunk Point of Order!" and make up a rule that the other actors have to abide by. During a recent "Macbeth," Macduff demanded that fellow actors instead call him "MacDaddy." " Full Review

The Wall Street Journal

for a previous production "It's wacky. It's a family affair. And it's proof that the musical is not dead. 'Pope!' uses a light story—an earnest young man becomes pope, only to be brought down by a manufactured scandal, then stages a comeback—paired with classic stage elements that make musicals fun and entertaining. This romp is full of smart songs and snappy choreography. Be prepared for a few good laughs." Full Review
