Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare", which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with one completely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare" has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head down to The Rockwell near Boston for "The Taming of the Shrew", because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]
