Standup Shakespeare

Words by William Shakespeare; Music by Ray Leslee; Book by Kenneth Welsh

Theatre 890, Off-Broadway - April 4, 1987 (2 perfs)

The set-up is simple: a Burlesque style comedian known simply as The Fool trades witticisms with a pair of cabaret singers.

Stand-up Shakespeare sets the timeless language of the Bard to the exciting rhythms of jazz, baroque, samba and gospel-rock original music. A fractured love story is performed by a modern-day Fool and two glorious singers.
