***** Highly Recommended ***** Who’d a thought that death could be so funny? Spymonkey, Britain’s leading physical comedy company, that’s who! “The Complete Deaths” is their silly, clever, slapstick, vulgar yet hysterically funny mash-up of all 74 onstage deaths in the plays of William Shakespeare. My friend Crista and I started laughing in about scene 1.5, and never stopped! 4 BIG Spotlights.
Spymonkey’s “The Complete Deaths” runs through December 11th Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier. Running time is 2 hours, 10 minutes, with an intermission. Remaining performances are December 6th, 7th, 8th, & 9th at 7:30 pm; December 10th at 3:00 and 8:00 pm; December 11th at 2:00 and 6:30 pm. Some performances are sold out. Tickets start at $42. Parking is available at a 40% discount in the Navy Pier Garages with validation from CST. FYI (312) 595-5600 or www.chicagoshakes.com.
