The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

In its 20th season, the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company completed “the canon,” the rare theatrical feat of performing every one of the Bard’s 38 works. To kick off its 21st season, the “classic” theater company does it again — in one evening! Just three actors perform this zany romp that cruises through all of Shakespeare’s comedies, histories and tragedies — especially Hamlet (which Cincy Shakes staged earlier this year). Justin McComb, Nick Rose and Jeremy Dubin use a trunkful of silly props, crazy wigs and outrageous costumes, as well as a surfeit of energy. 


Through Aug. 16. $22-$35. Cincinnati Shakespeare Company, 719 Race St., Downtown, 513-381-2273, cincyshakes.com.
