One actor has 5 shots of whiskey and then the show begins... ANYTHING. COULD. HAPPEN.
There is a hidden library on the 4th Floor of a building on 43rd and 8th. With over 9,000 books, The Drunk Shakespeare Society meets every night to drink... and perhaps do a little Shakespeare. A mysterious bartender serves cocktails through a 10-foot high bookcase made entirely of black books. 100 prized novels are forever buried in an amber fluid in front of a royal throne. Other easter eggs are hidden throughout the room...
Running Time: 90 minutes. Food & drink available. 21+ only. Photo ID required.
