Broadway Bard

Synopsis:
The Formula: choose a Shakespearean soliloquy or scene and match it appropriately with a Broadway song. Add boiling direction, mix with witty choreography, throw in an oblique introduction according to taste, then serve with lashings of whipped panache. It?s a recipe for gourmet cabaret.
