Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: The Taming of the Shrew @The Rockwell / BOS
We Magnificent Bastards are at it again! We shall bring you The Taming of the Shrew in all of its splendor and glory as only we know how -- a little bit drunk.  Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Shit-Faced Shakespeare®, which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last seven years, Shit-Faced Shakespeare® has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K. and the U.S. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals, London's West End, and in four cities in the states, where cast members drunkenly sing Zayn and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge, and head over to The Rockwell for the latest installment because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before!  Remember to enjoy Shakespeare responsibly. NOTE: Bar + Doors open 45 minutes prior to curtain. Times may vary! Please check your tickets for start times.

Sh!t-faced Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet @The Rockwell / BOS
Shit-faced Shakespeare is the deeply highbrow fusion of an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely shit-faced cast member. Side-splitting, raucous and completely unpredictable, the show has been running since 2010 and has already entertained over 100,000 eager theatre goers across the UK + US. Shit-faced Shakespeare landed Stateside in April of 2015 continues to bring you the hilarity at The Rockwell with Romeo and Juliet. With a genuinely drunken professional actor selected at random every night, no two shows are ever the same. Shit-Faced Shakespeare seeks to introduce a new generation of theatre-goers to the works of the Bard by reviving the raucous, interactive and vibrant nature of Elizabethan theatre with a very modern twist - reminding them as we go to always enjoy Shakespeare responsibly. ONGOING through 2017! NOTE: Most performances have doors at 6:15 / Curtain at 7:00pm (with a few exceptions -- please check your ticket for exact showtimes as they can vary!)
