Shakespeare event

Most people have always wanted to see a Shakespearean play — or at least think they should — but now they can have all 37 in one phenomenal evening of action and mirth. The crowd will cheer as the Tudor monarchs play football for the crown, salivate while Titus Andronicus hosts a cooking show and finally discover why Hamlet is such an emotional wreck.
