When: Saturdays. Continues through May 16 2009

It takes a few awkward minutes for the Pub Theater cast to find their rhythm, but once they do, this good-natured dash through the Bard's canon exudes the anarchic spirit of a frat party thrown by three manic English majors. Mike Barton, Heath Cordts, and Josh Dunkin have the easy chemistry and strong comic instincts necessary to sustain the premise. The humor leans a little heavily on body fluids and gay panic, but then again, take a look at the source material. The show makes a solid addition to the Saturday night lineup at the Chicago Center for the Performing Arts, which seems to be out to corner the booze-and-sketch-show market. --Leon Hilton
