Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC) is a touring American acting troupe that performs fast-paced, seemingly improvisational condensations of huge topics. The company's style has been described as "New Vaudeville," combining both physical and verbal humor, as well as highbrow and lowbrow. Known as the "Bad Boys of Abridgment," the RSC has created nine stage shows: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) in 1987, The Complete History of America (Abridged) in 1992, The Bible: The Complete Word of God (Abridged) in 1995, The Complete Millennium Musical (Abridged) in 1998, All the Great Books (Abridged) in 2002, Completely Hollywood (Abridged) in 2005, The Complete World of Sports (Abridged) in 2010, The Ultimate Christmas Show (Abridged) in 2011 and The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged) in 2013.
