Episode 386. Big Theatre Week

Published by austin on

ANDERSON-SHAKESPEARE 08Last week was a very big week for the Reduced Shakespeare Company and its (you’ll pardon the expression) members. We set a Guinness World Record for Highest Theatrical Performance, we previewed and opened The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) at Merrimack Repertory Theatre, Austin Tichenor opened in the Lookingglass Theatre production of In The Garden: A Darwinian Love Story in Chicago, Reed Martin opened his production of Spamalot at Santa Rosa Junior College, and Matt Tamanini at Broadway World.com listed us as #9 on its list of Top-20 Podcasts for Theatre Fans. Featuring comic inspirations, influential styles, returns to local haunts, things that play better in a proscenium, dangerous levels of schmaltz, a reduced review from Charles Towers, Artistic Director of Merrimack Repertory Theatre, and an unlikely apology for the absence of (alleged) subtleties.
