There are so many different types of Shakespeare-related shows in New York; there’s Shakespeare in the Park and Shakespeare for kids, but did you know there’s also Drunk Shakespeare? This adult-only Off-Broadway play has five actors performing a Shakespeare play when one of them starts drinking, which leads to an improv-style performance. As you can imagine, each performance is unique and hysterically funny in its own way – you just never know what will happen (and neither do the actors!) We have a giveaway for a pair of tickets to the show, plus we have a discount to share! Date Night Idea: Drunk Shakespeare (+ Giveaway and Discount)
The stage is set at The Lounge, a hidden library on 47th and 8th with over 15,000 real books and craft cocktails. 5 professional NY actors meet as members of “The Drunk Shakespeare Society”. One of them has at least 5 shots of whiskey and then overconfidently attempts to perform a major role in a Shakespearean play. Hilarity and mayhem ensue while the four sober actors try and keep the script on track. Every show is different depending on who is drinking… and what they’re drinking!
The show is 90 minutes long and for age 21 and older (photo ID required). Craft cocktails are available for purchase during the show.
