The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Today, St. George's Day, is the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and much as I admire his genius, I am loath to repeat the many praises and tributes flooding the intertubes on this occasion.  Instead, I offer my truckbuddies the chance to reacquaint themselves with the entirety of his marvelous oeuvre by way of the spirited efforts of the renowned Reduced Shakespeare Company, who, with typical American gusto, specialize in presenting the Bard's complete works onstage in just an hour and a half - believe it or not.  A sample of their work:

Should anyone care to watch the whole performance, he can do so here, in a somewhat better video version.  It may also be available on Netflix.
