Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare", which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare" has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Shakespeare knowledge and head down to The North Door, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]
