What a waste of time and money. Bad overpriced drinks. Horrible venue. Crazy loud music from next room. Love off Broadway but this show just seemed to wander and go for shock value.

We stumbled upon Drunk Shakespeare and what terrific fun. The actors were quick and witty, and the action non stop. They engaged the audience but in a respectful way. A great evening of laughs!
