Time Out says

This isn't your grandmother's Bard. Five classically trained actors gather to perform a Shakespeare play—with a twist: One of them gets into the whiskey before the show. Hilarity ensues as the four sober cast members attempt to keep the script on track.

TIME OUT DISCOUNT TICKET OFFER: 

DRUNK SHAKESPEARE 
The hit theatrical comedy

$29 for balcony tickets (regular price $49)

$49 for stage-side tickets (regular price $89)
*plus $4 processing fee

Promotional description: The stage is set in a hidden speakeasy located behind the Chicago Theater. Guests enter through a locksmith's shop to find a glam cocktail bar and library with over 10,000 books. Five classically-trained actors meet there as members of "The Drunk Shakespeare Society." One drinks at least five shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespearean play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue while the four sober actors try to keep the script on track. Each show is different depending on who is drinking…and what they're drinking!

Only one can be King (or Queen). Why not you? Learn more about the exclusive King Experience
