“Let all future doubters feel my sting
– that I not only writ my plays…
…I also sing!”

- William Shakespeare’s last words (*completely unverifiable)

Legend has it Shakespeare expired from a fever after a night of drinking. Raise your cups with the mysterious Bard of Avon on his “last night out” as he defends his authorship against doubting canker blossoms. From the multi-award winning Orgasmico Theatre Company comes a bawdy journey of song, recounting the secret events and odd characters who shaped the greatest writer of all time.

CRITIC REVIEWS FOR “SHAKESPEARE’S…”:

“LA Weekly, “Shakespeare as a Rock Star…For sheer entertainment value and uncanny comic timing, Shaw’s dozen-song impersonation of an alcoholic and dissipated Shakespeare on the eve of his death — defending his authorship from posterity’s naysayers — can’t be beat.”
-Bill Raden, LA Weekly

“…overall, this is the apex of this talented artist’s work up to this point and his medieval pop score is unmatched in its wit and originality…”
-Colin Mitchell, LA Bitter Lemons
