Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)

Hamlet Abridged Shakespeare

"It is an amazingly, occasionally over-the-top romp that I have enjoyed working with immensely and accordingly I would like to dedicate this show to another amazing, occasionally over-the-top theatrical genius whom I enjoyed working with immensely for many years. Our founding set and lighting designer, tech director, and wizard Jim McKie died unexpectedly at his home in Fairfax on May 23, 1998. He would have been just 52 this year, the same brief span allotted to Shakespeare. Jim and I first put on shows back in the 60's (....theatrical design, lights, building, engineering, painting, rigging, flying, special effects....) you name it, McKie knew how to do it and do it well. He set the standard for our luscious and complex sets which he felt this vast Forest Meadows stage called for. I will miss him immeasurably."
- Robert S. Currier

What the Critics Said:Hamlet and Ghost in Abridged Shakespeare

"It’s a feast of Good Will, a light but tempting treat that not only promises but proceeds to serve up just about the entire menu of the Bard. Be assured that every single play receives at least a nibble… Directed by the company’s artistic director Robert Currier, who milks every last irreverent drop out of this romp, the evening features the considerable talents of three young men in rather fetching tights and knee pads – David Berkson, Darren Bridgett, and Lucus McClure… Hamlet done backwards. It's a real tour de force."
- Roberta Floden, Marin I.J.

the Roman plays from Compete Wrks of Wllm Shkspr abridged




"…more fun than Shakespeare himself….For this fast take on the Bard’s life you don’t need to bring anything to the table but a willingness to go along with three likable performers (and one stuffed dummy) who will do anything to keep you amused."
- Lee Brady, Pacific Sun


The Complete Shakespeare Abridged



“Imagine, if you will, the greatest scenes from Shakespeare’s finest works – Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet, say - performed with pratfall perfection by the Three Stooges. Throw in the Marx Brothers, then add a tad of Tommy Smothers' world-class whining. You will have The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)….The uproarious Marin Shakespeare Company production, performed by the zany three-man team of Lucas McClure, David Berkson and Darren Bridgett, is not only brilliantly written, it is flawlessly executed – to everyone’s delight.”
- Mary Connell, Novato Advance
