The Good Book Just Got Better!
It’s apocalypse now as the three cultural guerrillas of The Reduced Shakespeare Company set their reductive sights on the good book with The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged).

Yes, it’s an affectionate, irreverent roller coaster ride from fig leaves to final judgment as the bad boys of abridgement tackle the great theological questions:

Did Adam and Eve have navels? Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston? And why isn’t the word “phonetic” spelt the way it sounds?
 Whether you are Catholic or Protestant, Muslim or Jew, Atheist or Jedi, you will be tickled by the RSC’s romp through old time religion.

‘It’s wacky! It’s zany! And a little profaney.’ Sister MaryAnne Walsh, Arlington Catholic Herald
‘This is a slick, fast, very funny show… skilled performers with immaculate, sassy American timing.’ The Times
‘The RSC put the “fun” back in fundamentalism.’ Baltimore Sun
‘Pure fun. The troupe seems more anarchic than ever.’ The Washington Times
It can be said with no small amount of enthusiasm, Go See This Show. Dare we say it? They’re funnier than Hell.’ The Anchorage Press
‘This is a trio of incredible comedians, blessed with a rare sense of timing and rapport. The laughs come like a flood. Before you finish laughing at the first joke, you find yourself laughing at the next one.’ Ma’ariv News – Jerusalem
