Time Out says

Five classically trained actors gather to perform a Shakespeare play, but this dramatic cocktail is served with a twist: One of them gets boozed up before the show—in the vein of Comedy Central's Drunk History—and hilarity ensues as the four sober cast members try to keep the script on track. Audience members can buy alcoholic drinks of their own to get into the spirit of the event. 


The hit theatrical comedy 

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

Promotional description: 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!
