Every night in a hidden library on 47th and 8th with over 15,000 books a Drunk Shakespeare society member will have at least five shots of whiskey and then attempt to perform in a Shakespearean play. Each performance by The Drunk Shakespeare Society requires a Patron, an audience member to be the King or Queen who helps run the show. Anything can, and does, happen. Craft cocktails available during the show.
