“Imagine all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays as written by Reader’s Digest, acted by Monty Python, and performed at the speed of the Minute Waltz, and you’ll have a sense of the RSC’s hyperkinetic Laughfest, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). The RSC breezes through Shakespeare with such revisionist relish and comic dexterity that even those who have only a general knowledge of his plays won’t be able to resist.” Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
