Tallahassee, Florida (September 28, 2010) –

Tallahassee Community College’s Theatre TCC! opens its 2010-11 season at 8 p.m., Thursday, September 30 with “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).”

Praised by the Los Angeles Times as “wildly funny” and by the Montreal Gazette as “the funniest show you are likely to see in your entire lifetime,” “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is a non-stop rollercoaster ride through the Shakespearean canon. See Othello win Desdemona’s heart with a rap song, check out the Titus Andronicus Cooking Show, and experience Hamlet performed backwards! Executed by three actors in a mere 90 minutes, this show will keep you laughing from beginning to end.

“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” is directed by M. Derek Nieves, who also directed “The Hobbit” for Theatre TCC last year.
