With more than 1,600 cans and over 450 bottle of beer consumed onstage, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has racked up impressive numbers. Ripping a page out of the ingeniously sloppy series "Drunk History", the theater troupe behind Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare inserts an entirely inebriated cast member into an entirely serious production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Laugh-out-loud funny and completely interactive, the series has been selling out shows in the UK since 2010 and finally makes its way stateside. With audiences dictating when the drunk actor must drink more, no two performances are ever the same. And lest you think it disrespectful, it's all based on the good 'ol days of the raucous, interactive and vibrant Elizabethan theater scene. The most fun, bawdy Shakespeare play you'll ever see happens at Camp Bar in St. Paul. [less-]
