Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

An actor drinks heavily (in the vein of Comedy Central's Drunk History) and then tries to corral others into enacting a story by the Bard. Bibulous excess is encouraged.



The hit theatrical comedy in the heart of Broadway

$35 for balcony tickets (regular price $55)
$49 for mezzanine tickets (regular price $69)
$69 for stage-side tickets (regular price $89)

Promotional description: The stage is set at the Lounge, a hidden library in Times Square featuring craft cocktails and more 15,000 real books. Five professional New York actors meet as members of the Drunk Shakespeare Society. One of them has at least five shots of whiskey, then overconfidently attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespearean play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue as the four sober actors try to keep the script on track. Every show is different depending on who is drinking…and what they're drinking!

Only one can be King. Learn more about the exclusive King Experience.
