The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a touring American acting troupe that performs fast-paced, seemingly improvisational condensations of huge topics. The company's style has been described as "New Vaudeville," combining both physical and verbal humor, as well as high brow and low brow. Known as the "Bad Boys of Abridgment," the RSC has created eight stage shows: "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) in 1987, "The Complete History of America (abridged)" in 1992, "The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged)" in 1995, "The Complete Millennium Musical (abridged)" in 1998, "All the Great Books (abridged)" in 2002, "Completely Hollywood (abridged)" in 2005, "The Complete World of Sports (abridged)" in 2010, and "The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged)" in 2011. The Company tours most frequently across the U.S. and Great Britain, and has also performed in Belgium, Holland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Barbados, Bermuda, Israel, and Ireland. The Reduced Shakespeare Company is heard frequently on both National Public Radio and the BBC.
