Lights! Camera! Reduction!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the theatre, the Reduced Shakespeare Company boldly goes where few would dare – Tinseltown! America’s “bad boys of abridgement” take on America’s largest export as they shake up showbiz in this epic edit of movie masterpieces.
You’ve seen Shakespeare, the Bible and All The Great Books but now get your clapper boards ready! Let the RSC rummage through the reels and flick through the films in this riotous carnival of the classics. Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and a tuck, they cut through the celluloid to condense Casablanca, fast forward through King Kong and race through Rocky.
May the farce be with you.
The Hollywood Reporter
