LeGacy Presents will bring yet another hilarious comedy by the Reduced Shakespeare Company to the Off Center Stage starting next week.
Following the hugely successful and popular “The Complete Works of Williams Shakespeare,” presented by LeGacy last fall, Scott Ewing will once again direct this three-actor fast, fun, and rollicking comedy.
Six hundred years in 6,000 seconds! “The Complete History of America” explores the history of our country from its discovery, through the years, encompassing the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, women’s lib, the space age and every other cultural or political genre that can easily be made fun.
Three veteran actors approach such important and varied questions such as: Who really discovered America? Why did Abe Lincoln free the slaves? How many Democrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
LeGacy co-founder and veteran actor Alvis LeGate (“A Few Good Men,” “On the Waterfront,” “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” and “I Hate Hamlet”) is joined by Jay Barker (“A Few Good Men,” “Tiny Tim’s Christmas,” “Complete Works of Shakespeare,” “Every Christmas Story Ever Told”) and newcomer Patrick Moore (“Miracle on 34th St.”). This show is rated PG.
The show runs from May 3 through May 26.
