The Shakespeare Revue is compiled by Christopher Luscombe and Malcom McKee for the Kāpiti Playhouse.
This collection of humorous skits, sketches and songs takes a lovable but irreverent poke at the life and works of William Shakespeare. You have all heard of him, but not necessarily in this way! First presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company, this Revue contains some of the finest comic material inspired by the Bard.
There are over 40 contributors to this entertainment, including Noel Coward, Monty Python, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tim Brook-Taylor, Victoria Wood, Maureen Lipman, Alan Bennett, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore. It features songs and comedy sketches from Edwardian Music Hall through Cole Porter to Stephen Sondheim. With contributions from the cream of writing and musical talent this collective masterpiece is certain to ENTERTAIN! The Shakespeare Revue is an evening of sparkling wit and unabashed fun.
This show is especially suitable for a group entertaining evening out.
The co-directors are Dom Ware and John Govier; both bringing a wealth of theatrical experience to this production.
