The show was so sophomoric. The stars were trying to get as much money as possible from the audience by bidding out for "volunteers". They were a bunch of money grubbers and the jokes were meant for a bunch of teenage boys. Had been to the show in Boston which was so much better and funny.

What a great little theater! We went to see Drunk Shakespeare and could not have imagined a better experience. I have seen many different productions of Shakespeare and my husband has seen none and both of us enjoyed this show. The show was hysterical with actual great acting mix in to the most ridiculous settings and situations. We are already planning to go back and have recommend it anyone who we talked to about it. The theater was small but you were not crammed in with to many people. Every seat had a good if not great view and the servers were very skilled at bringing you your drinks without interrupting the show at all. The ticket itself includes a shot that you get when you walk in. The shot is their house mix and it was tasty and did not have a strong alcohol taste. The drink menu was small but they had something for everyone. I really enjoyed the Juliet. Over all it was an amazing experience and we can not wait to go again.

Totally terrible. Not funny. Just pure vulgarity in sexual content and language. The F word constantly. A waste of time and money. This is not art and not funny.

The only way to describe this is the miment we walked in we started laughing and when we left we were still laughing and in between we never stopped laughing. You should go.

The show was a blast. The cast were great improvisers, and had the audience in tears for most of the show. The theater is tiny and audience participation is pretty much mandatory and fun. I spent 4 days in Chicago and this was definitely the highlight of my trip.

We couldn’t stop laughing all show long. This show is a gem and the actors are hysterical. Definitely see this show if you have the chance

We had an absolute blast! The theater is very intimate, so there are no bad seats. There was quite a bit of audience participation, which was fun. You can buy snacks and drinks, but there’s not substantial food, so go to Miss Ricky’s for dinner before the show.

Entertaining and different but certainly not a “must see”. The performance would have been much better had the foul language been kept to a minimum. The use of the “F” Word over and over and over again took away from what the night could have been. While they advertised a full bar they only offered beer and wine during our performance.

These guys are amazing actors. They are simply beautiful to watch. They give us a blend of Shakespearian class and modern crude prose, salted with a pinch of sexuality and madness.
