Stick With The Print Version Instead

You've heard of the show that brings you the complete works of Shakespeare (abridged). Now, the Public Theatre of South Florida has just opened its season with All the Great Books (abridged), during which three artistes "race through allusions to some 90 books, from 1984 to Wuthering Heights, lingering just a little longer on The Iliad, The Odyssey, War and Peace and James Joyce's Ulysses. Many of the bits are just plain silly (or stupid, depending on your point of view), as when the 'Trojan horse' (two of the guys in a horse costume) hops around to the strains of Havah Nagilah."


  • Hey - that sucks. Maybe they wanted to cheer people. (Seinfeld asks Kramer why he wanted to move to Florida. "That's where people go to die.")
