PITTSBURGH (December 14, 2010) Pittsburgh Public Theater is thrilled to welcome back Reduced Shakespeare Company with their brand-new show, The Complete World of Sports (abridged). Starring Reed Martin, Matt Rippy and Austin Tichenor, The Complete World of Sports (abridged) runs for eight performances only, January 4 – 9 at the O’Reilly Theater, Pittsburgh Public Theater’s home in the heart of Downtown’s Cultural District. For tickets call 412.316.1600 or visit www.ppt.org.
Pittsburgh Public Theater Producing Artistic Director Ted Pappas describes Reduced Shakespeare Company as “a potent combination of verbal dexterity and physical comedy.” In their new show the guys are broadcasters for the Reduced Shakespeare Company Sports Network (RSCSN), who report from around the world about sporting events throughout history. Alternating between anchor man, reporter and players, their subjects include baseball, cricket, golf, fight songs, coaches, female athletes, bullfighting, and even curling. The audience will be called upon to help create the sport of the future and four audience members will join the guys onstage for the Olympic parade of nations. With big laughs and plenty of audience interaction, this brand-new show sprints through the world of sports in record-breaking speed. For more info visit Reduced Shakespeare.com.
Reduced Shakespeare Company first appeared at Pittsburgh Public Theater in 1995. Since then all six of their world-renowned shows have been performed here: The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), The Complete History of America (abridged), The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged), Completely Hollywood (abridged), All the Great Books (abridged), and The Millennium Musical.
