|Description:||Join Texas Performing Arts for an evening of laugh-out-loud, original theatre. The Reduced Shakespeare Company (RSC) is renowned for taking long, serious subjects and reducing them to short, sharp comedies.
Since its 1981 origins as a pass-the-hat act in California, RSC has created six stage shows, several TV programs and numerous radio pieces - all of which have been performed, seen, and heard the world over.
RSC brings a brand-new championship comedy, "The Complete World of Sports (Abridged)" to Hogg Auditorium stage. This hysterical evening sprints through the world of sports at record-breaking speed. From the earliest cavemen playing "Neanderthal in the Middle" to your own kid's soccer practice, the history of athletic competition is regurgitated in a Tour de France of physical theater, at a level of sophistication and pathos that only the RSC can muster. It's a marathon of madness and mayhem as the world's great sporting events are shrunk to theatrical size.
"Slick, intelligent, altogether hilarious!" - "Irish Times," Dublin
"Intellectual vaudeville ... they are smart, cheeky clowns who present themselves as a collective repository for most of American mass culture." - "New York Times"
