Ever get into Shakespeare discussions at your local after a pint or two? The New York-based Drunk Shakespeare crew – who recently came to our attention – take things to the next level with their unique take on the Bard’s work. Each night, one of their cast members drinks at least 5 shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform in a Shakespearean play to the assembled crowd… what could possibly go wrong?!
Far from a druken free-for-all, the Drunk Shakespeare show combines song, dance, improvisation, and puppets, with much of Shakespeare’s wit and words, and was recently nominated for an Off Broadway Alliance Award for “Best Unique Theatrical Experience”.
Here’s a little taster, and if you’re in New York go check them out!
