64 Ways to Die: A Shakespeare Death Cabaret

64 Ways to Die: A Shakespeare Death Cabaret was performed on July 19th, 2014 at the Glad Day Book Shop and was hosted by Amanda Cordner.

An encyclopedic variety show of every death from Shakespeare’s tragedies performed in every style imaginable. We’re talking everything from slam poetry, physical theatre, burlesque, drag, puppetry, clown, performance art, and traditional Elizabethan performance. Highlights include the final scene of Hamlet as a drinking game, Cleopatra performing a deathly strip tease, Romeo and Juliet taking selfies and hashtagging from the tomb, and an epic pie fight that ends everyone in Titus Andronicus.
