William Shakespeare’s Complete Works in 90 Minutes

Hollywood Fringe Festival 2017 imageThe Complete Works of William Shakespeare by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Winfield has been bending audiences over sideways with laughter for at least four decades now. It has turned into such a successful franchise for the three writers, they have lived comfortably off it for all these years.

In the hands of the right actors this sendoff, of the Bard and his work, is a juggernaut of mirth and mayhem.

During last year’s Fringe, I took my dear wife Marlene to see a version with three women performing in it.

Disaster does not describe what we endured that night.

A couple of weeks of pleading and arguing could not convince my lovely spouse to give this show another chance.  So I resorted to outright lying.  (I told her we were seeing Cats.)

Once Marlene observed the three actors on stage at The Met, just off Western, without either fur or whiskers, my conniving was exposed and my life not worth a plug nickel.

I will be eternally grateful to Paul Green, Jordan Merimee and Dorian Tayler for their superbly entertaining and Platinum Medalskillful tomfoolery that had my wife bent over with laughter before she could get her hands around my throat.

For putting on a wonderful show and saving my miserable carcass: A PLATINUM MEDAL.

An award-winning L.A. playwright and rabble-rouser of note who has hoisted glasses with Orson Welles, been arrested on three continents and once beat up Charlie Manson. His first play, "Among the Vipers" was a semi-finalist in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition and was featured in the Carnegie-Mellon Showcase of New Plays. It was produced at the NPT Theater in Ashland, Oregon and Los Angeles’ celebrated Odyssey Ensemble Theatre. His following play, “The Little Boy Who Loved Monsters” was produced at The Hollywood Actors Theater, where he earned praise from the Los Angeles Times for his “…inordinately creative writing.” The play went on to numerous other productions including Berlin’s The Black Theatre under the direction of Rainer Fassbinder who wrote in his program notes of Kearney, “He is a skilled playwright, but more importantly he is a dangerous one.” Ernest Kearney has worked as literary manager or as dramaturge for among others The Hudson Theater Guild, Nova Diem and the Odyssey Ensemble Theatre, where he still serves on the play selection committee. He has been the recipient of two Dramalogue Awards and a finalist or semi-finalist, three times, in the Julie Harris Playwriting Competition. His work has been performed by Michael Dunn, Sandra Tsing Loh, Jack Colvin and Billy Bob Thornton, and to date, either as playwright or director, he has upwards of a hundred and thirty productions under his belt, including a few at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater as puppeteer. Kearney remains focused on his writing, as well as living happily ever after with his lovely wife Marlene. His stage reviews and social essays can be found at TheTVolution.com and workingauthor.com.
