I cannot say enough about this show. The actors were fantastic, the premise is hilarious, and the setting is so unique. It takes place in a small room (up a lot of stairs) that's been transformed into a library with a sunken stage in the...More

What a waste of time and money. Bad overpriced drinks. Horrible venue. Crazy loud music from next room. Love off Broadway but this show just seemed to wander and go for shock value.

We stumbled upon Drunk Shakespeare and what terrific fun. The actors were quick and witty, and the action non stop. They engaged the audience but in a respectful way. A great evening of laughs!
