The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) is all of Shakespeare’s plays condensed into a two-hour comedic escapade performed by three actors and an audience primed to play along. Opening this Friday, July 12 at the Vortex Theatre (2900 Carlisle Blvd. NE), this Ryan Jason Cook-directed play promises to be a quick, lighthearted take on a vast amount of material. Expect to be involved. Tickets are $24 and the curtain is at 7:30pm. For more information and tickets for this all-ages event, see vortexabq.org.
