Take a journey to the mysterious hidden library on the second floor of a building on 47rd and 8th, behind an imposing ten foot high black bookcase is a secret bar, the meeting place of the infamous Drunk Shakespeare Society!

Oddities abound in this clandestine corner in the heart of the theatre district, not least the display of one hundred books, forever encased in amber fluid beside a royal throne...

But the main event really begins when one actor takes to the stage after at least five shots of whiskey...and attempts to perform an entire play by William Shakespeare. Notoriously tongue-twisting when dead sober, Drunk Shakespeare takes the bard in a whole new direction. So grab a drink, sit back and enjoy a totally unpredictable and riotously hilarious evening!

Created by Scott Griffin and David Hudson, this critically acclaimed show takes the bard in a whole new direction.
