HAMILTON – 600 Years of History in 6000 Seconds … History Will Never Be The Same! The Palace Theater presents “The Complete History of America - Abridged” Friday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m. The three cultural guerillas of Reduced Shakespeare Company perform a “special election edition” including a presidential debate (with Romney talking to a chair). They tackle such controversial questions as: Who really discovered America? Why did Abe Lincoln free the slaves? How many Democrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb? History is normally written by the winners; now it’s RSC’s turn and it’s a 90 minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American History, reminding us that it’s not the length of your history that matters – it’s what you’ve done with it!
Doors open at 7 p.m. so come early with your friends to start the evening of hilarious comedy right, pick a great seat and enjoy the cash bar catered by Rusch’s Bar and Grill.
“The Reduced Shakespeare Company cheerfully run riot over 500 years of our country’s history… they mine dozens of landmark events and trends for comic gold...” Washington Post
