Overview
What to Expect
Visit: Drunk Shakespeare, 182 N Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60601-3624

Get ready for a hilarious take on Shakespeare during this unique, 90-minute show in Chicago's renowned Loop district. Located at "The Lounge", this quirky performance showcases an intoxicated cast member. One classically-trained actor has at least five shots of whiskey and then attempts to perform in a Shakespearean play. The results are what Slate magazine describes as ‘the best thing to ever happen to the theater.’ Craft cocktails are available for purchase during the show and there is a special treat upon arrival.

Came across this hidden gem and ended up the highlight of our weekend! Keep in mind we had little Shakespeare knowledge and wasn't sure what to expect. But as Wisconsinites, we figured if you mix alcohol in, it's GOT to be good! We haven't laughed that hard in a long time. The

Very fun time! Crazy presentation of Shakespeare. You won't know which play till they start the evening or which actor will be the main one! Adds to the fun! Definitely an adult event and so hilariously funny. They involve the audience and add some very funny elements to

We found this show on Groupon. Tickets are not cheap but totally worth it! We bought the stage front tickets and it was not necessary. The theater room is super small and you will see everything perfectly no matter what seats you get. The place is super cozy. The cast is

We went to a matinee and had a great time. The show is fun, crazy and fast paced. It’s not suitable for children, but hilarious adult entertainment.

The minute we walked into the room we were laughing. By far one of the funniest shows I have ever seen. I don’t know much about Shakespeare, you don’t have to. If I lived in Chicago I would do it again.
