Drunk Shakespeare Information

One professional New York actor has at least 5 shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform in a Shakespearean play. 

The Drunk Shakespeare Society has been meeting, drinking and performing Shakespeare for over a thousand nights ... and over a thousand litres of liquor. This talented troupe of rotating members loves
sharing the epic poetry of William Shakespeare, but you don't need to know a lick of it to enjoy yourself. Pop culture references, improvisation, audience games, a wealth of surprises and liberal departures from
the text (with outrageous consequences) make this accessible for anyone who likes a drink. Every night is different and truly anything can happen.

Drunk Shakespeare returns at the Lounge from July 2. Book Drunk Shakespeare tickets in New York now. Ticket holders for Drunk Shakespeare must be 21+.

There is a hidden library in Times Square. With over 15,000 books, The Drunk Shakespeare Society meets every night to drink... and perhaps do a little Shakespeare. A mysterious bartender serves cocktails through a 10-foot high bookcase made entirely of black books. 100 prized novels are forever buried in an amber fluid in front of a royal throne. Other easter eggs are hidden throughout the room...
