The Compleat Works of Wllm Shkspr (Abridged), The Reduced Shakespeare Company, Applause, 1994, ISBN 1-55783-157-2, $8.95

Comedy routine or inspired lunacy–whatever it is, this is the complete script of it, including the shortest “Hamlet” ever performed (and then done backwards for an encore), and “Titus Andronicus” as a cooking show. There’s lots of fun between these covers for both the bardolator and the bard-hater, including a strange collection of annotations by a not-quite-so learned professor. Although some bits don’t play as well on the page, it’s not that long and at least you don’t have to suffer through some inane laugh track.

[Finished 4 March 1995]
