Unseam'd takes two different looks at Shakespeare

Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

The Unseam'd Shakespeare Company will celebrate its 20th anniversary with two different approaches to the works of William Shakespeare.

The season will begin Feb. 14-March 2 with the irreverent comedy “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged”) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield. Employing skits, wordplay and physical comedy, three performers provide a rapid-fire romp through all of Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, histories and poetry in 97 minutes. Performances will take place at the Pittsburgh Playwrights Theatre, 937 Liberty Ave., Downtown at 8 p.m. Thursdays and Saturdays, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Fridays and 2 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets for “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged”) will go on sale Feb. 1.

Also planned for the season is Scott Palmer's adaptation of Shakespeare's “The Tempest or The Enchanted Isle.” It will run June 12-29 in the Studio Theatre of the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning in Oakland.

Times have not yet been set for performances of “The Tempest” but will be announced when tickets for that production go on sale in the spring.

Tickets for either production are $25, $23 in advance. Discounts are available for students and seniors.
