"Zany, Rowdy and Debaucherous" -New York Times

The play's the thing, to be, or not, or something like that anyway! Whether you are trying to catch the conscience of the king or not, Drunk Shakespeare is sure to captivate, enthrall, titillate and entertain you. Of course, as the infamous Porter in Macbeth said, 'Drink, sir, is a great provoker.' Sure he was talking about impotence and sleep and stuff, but don't that slow you down! At Drunk Shakespeare, one of our actors will down 5 shots of whiskey and then attempt to perform one of the Bard's classics--and anything can happen. Watch in awe (maybe even with a little cringing) as these talented thespians shift seamlessly from one Othello to Twelfth Night to sonnets and back to Romeo and Juliet, or really anywhere in between. Come on though, let's be honest. That actor is hammered, but this is one night where theDrunk Shakespeare society will prove that some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them. So grab this deal where all the bar is a stage, and all the players are drunk!
