Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Do you enjoy a little excess drinking from time to time? How about a combination of the two? Come experience the fun surrounding The Drunk Shakespeare Society at New York, NY’s The Lounge for an enjoyable—and drunken—night of humorous debauchery.

Innovation Meets Shakespeare

In a theatrical spinoff from Comedy Central’s Drunk History, one of the Drunk Shakespeare Society’s five actors starts the show off by taking five shots of whiskey. Next, he or she attempts to perform scenes from Shakespeare’s plays while coaxing the guests in the audience into interacting. The guests attending can order their cocktails from a bartender that serves them through a ten-foot bookshelf decorated fully with black books.

Uniquely, the performance takes place in a hidden library in a building located on 43rd and 8th Street in New York City. The library houses over fifteen thousand books, and functions as an appropriate backdrop for the society to meet and perform Shakespeare plays—with a bit of whiskey in them.
