Reduced Shakespeare Company - The Ultimate Christmas Show
November 29, 2012
301 E. 5th St. , Fort Worth, TX
Performing Arts Fort Worth ushers in the holiday season with the hysterical three-man show Reduced Shakespeare: The Ultimate Christmas Show (Abridged) at McDavid Studio, as part of the Broadway Off Bass at McDavid series, on Nov. 28-Dec. 2, 2012. Tickets start at $27.50.
Since forming in 1981, the Reduced Shakespeare Company comedy troupe has created eight world-renown stage shows, two TV specials, several failed TV pilots and numerous radio pieces, all of which have been performed, seen and heard the world over. The company’s itinerary has included stops at the White House, the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Center, London’s West End, Seattle Repertory Theatre, American Repertory Theatre and Montreal’s famed Just for Laughs Festival.
Reed Martin, one of the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s three performers, said the premise of the company’s Christmas show revolves around a Christmas pageant.
From that premise, the Reduced Shakespeare Company – which also includes Matt Rippy and Austin Tichenor - develops a new, highly unique version of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza and Winter Solstice, look out.
As is the case with other shows in the Broadway Off Bass at McDavid series, there will be plenty of audience participation. "There are so many ways to make new versions of The Twelve Days of Christmas that the audience will help us."
