LOST REDUCED

REDUCING LOST IN LONDON!

They said it couldn't be done. They said it shouldn't be done. But now it is done! At the behest of SKY TV in London, the RSC has reduced the first five seasons of the TV show LOST - 104 episodes - into a brief and palatable ten minutes! With Matt Rippy (the good looking one) as Jack. And Reed Martin (the bald one) as John Locke. And Austin Tichenor (the curly headed one) as most everyone else!

Take a peek! Here's a link to a backstage look at the process.

And here's a link to the live performance in front of a studio audience in London - with a funny intro by LOST's Writer/Producers Damon & Carlton.

Shorty Awards

RSC NOMINATED FOR A SHORTY AWARD (the "Oscars" of Tweeting")

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a finalist in the second annual Shorty Awards , which honors “the best producers of short (140 characters or less) real-time content.” Translated, that means the award is given to the person or company who uses and exploits the social network  Twitter to its maximum effect. The Shorty Awards have been called “ the Oscars of Twitter ” by CNN and USA Today.

Well, who else should win a Shorty Award but a Reduced Shakespeare Company?! We've been producers of reduced content for years.

We Tweet mostly ‘cuz it's fun. Twitter's a great way to mini-blog about what we're up to, to dialogue with our fans, and to spread the love about other things and people we see and love and want to proselytize about. But to get an award for it? That'd be awesome.

And the winner... will be announced March 3rd, 2010!
