"Let me say this: You certainly do not have to be a fan of Shakespeare to enjoy this show. In fact, Shakespeare-haters may even like it more." --Georgia Perry, Santa Cruz Weekly SHAKESPEARE! RAP!! & BURLESQUE!!! is an insane journey thru Time, Space, Rap & the Works and Life of William Shakespeare. "From where we're sitting, this performance features some of the best acting in the whole festival. Plus it's magic, ... and the guy playing Engel has really cool facial hair. Grab a goblet of mead beforehand and head to the show, prepared to be amazed." Engel has over 400 years experience performing Shakespeare. Engel also performs magic, sings and raps Shaxpere -- along with other delights. The audience has the opportunity to win prizes, be amazed, and enjoy a hypnotic evening of absurdity. And, Engel always has a Special Guest! "A sort of Shakespeare's Greatest Hits, this show is largely improvised and conversational, with sprinklings throughout of unbelievably well-delivered monologues from the bard's hit list, including Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. This is a great date night show, as I literally saw a woman tear up when Engel delivered a love monologue to her and told her to pretend it was coming from her husband, seated next to her." Engel Meister (known as Engel the Elder) is a Renaissance Festival, Stage, Film, and Recording Artist. He has recorded the album SHAXPERE & MUSIC II with guitar accompaniment & written fairy-tales including, THE BLIND GIRL & THE MUSHROOM MAN. The Sixty Grit Theater Company present this fascinating 50-minute show Conceived and Directed by Greg Paroff. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, or Greg Paroff at 831.325.9548.
