Reduced Shakespeare vs World of Sports

You needn’t be a sports fan or even a Shakespeare fanatic to fully appreciate “The Complete World of Sports (abridged), presented by the Reduced Shakespeare Company at 8 p.m., Friday, March 2, 2012, at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. That’s because the Reduced Shakespeare Company is a brilliantly funny three-man comedy troupe that takes long, serious subjects - all kinds of subjects - and reduces them to short, sharp comedies. Tickets are $35, $30 and $25.

In “The Complete World of Sports (abridged)” the team of Austin Tichenor and Reed Martin, who co-wrote the script, and Matt Rippy reduces every sport ever played on every continent in the entire history of the world! The performance, first unveiled in 2010, is a merciless but affectionate satire of an ESPN-type broadcast in which the actors poke fun at America’s obsession with sports, their celebrities and the pompous talking heads on TV who love the sound of their own voices.

Tickets are available through the Quick Center Box Office: (203) 254-4010, or toll-free 1-877-ARTS-396. (1-877-278-7396). Tickets can also be purchased online at

Entrance to the Quick Center is through the Barlow Road gate at 200 Barlow Road. Free, secure parking is available. Access for people with disabilities is available throughout the Quick Center for audience members and performers. Hearing amplification devices are available upon request at the Box Office.
