What We Love
  • Described as a "live-action Drunk History" by TimeOut NY
  • Fully-immersive and interactive experience with plenty of audience participation!
  • It's a play...sort of...and it's a party, entirely
  • Perfect 5 out of 5 rating on TripAdvisor. Near perfect rating on Yelp
"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 the Drunk 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!

The cast was AMAZING! They engaged the audience before, during and after the performance. The venue was small, intimate and perfect for the type of performance that was presented. Definitely not a show for the “serious Shakespeare enthusiasts�. Would see it again in a heartbeat. Was worth every penny. Can’t wait to see which one of Will’s pieces they cast conquer next. Bravo, bravissimo����������

We had a hoot at Drunk Shakespeare. We'd recommend it to anyone with a good sense of humour, and who likes a drink, visiting NYC. The cast is lots of fun and it looked like everyone, including us, had a great time.

Raunchier than my first time. I won't go again, because it's always Macbeth. Good players, and quick uptakes.

Honestly, I didn't buy mezzanine seating so this looks like it is screwed up. I haven't attended yet so I don't know how I can rate it.
