Lensic Presents Reduced Shakespeare Company In William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (Abridged)
Thu, May 11 onetime 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


Location: Lensic Performing Arts Center

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. In this “tale told by idiots,” the Company weaves all of The Bard's famous characters, greatest lines, and magnificent speeches into a brand new Shakespearean smorgasbord that erupts when Puck and Ariel hijack the plot of Comedy of Errors, creating such new and strange bedfellows as Kate and Beatrice, Hamlet and master motivator Lady Macbeth, Dromio and Juliet, as well as King Lear and his three daughters who turn out to be the three weird sisters from Macbeth. William Shakespeare's Long-Lost First Play (Abridged) is a comic misadventure that will feel strangely familiar yet excitingly new.

In the spirit of Shakespeare himself, RSC shows contain some occasional bawdy language and mild innuendo. All children (and parents) are different, so we've chosen to rate our shows PG-13: Pretty Good If You're Thirteen. visit our website

A "visual artist whose medium is dance," choreographer Jessica Lang incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet language to conceive a complete universe, both artfully crafted and emotionally engaging. The Julliard graduate and former member of Twyla Tharp's company has choreographed works for Hubbard Street 2, ABT II, and Pennsylvania Ballet. She founded a company dedicated to creating and performing her work, Jessica Lang Dance, in 2011.

“Her Road” is the third in Lang's trilogy of pieces inspired by the life and work of Georgia O'Keeffe. The first, “Her Door to the Sky,” created for Pacific Northwest Ballet, premiered at Jacob's Pillow in August 2016. The second, “Her Notes,” was created for American Ballet Theatre and premiered in October 2016.
