...with a twist!

'Tis not thy grandam’s Shakespeare! Shakespeare… with a twist! is New York’s newest best night out – bringing the violent, sexy, hysterical plays of William Shakespeare the way they were meant to be seen: while drinking!

We're staging no-frills, fast-paced performances of the Bard’s greatest works in bars across NYC. And in true 16th century fashion we're tearing down the fourth wall and putting our groundlings (that's YOU) directly into the action! With only 24 hours of rehearsal, our merry band of professional actors is ready to make you laugh, cry, cringe, boo, and cheer. And don't forget: whenever we forget a line... everyone drinks!

So welcome, royals and groundlings alike, to Shakespeare…with a twist! Sit back, relax, and let’s put the BAR back in Bard!

Shakespeare... with a twist! runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
