The Corpse Bride

Part of The Ashkenaz Festival, the title and plot of Theatre PANIK’s latest production reminds us of Tim Burton’s 2005 film, which was based on the same shtetl folklore. In this play, a young groom on the way to his bride’s village accidentally weds himself to a corpse bride; hilarity ensues.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

All 37 of William Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes? Shakespeare once said brevity is the soul of wit, and it looks like The Classical Theatre Project really takes that to heart in this hilarious interactive comedy.
