Reduced Shakespeare Company returns with a strangely familiar, yet excitingly new, comic misadventure. In this “tale told by idiots,” a brand new Shakespearean smorgasbord erupts when Puck & 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. 

Something wickedly funny this way comes! ... and wickedly smart, too, as you'd expect from the 'other' RSC.

Bob Mondello, National Public Radio
