The Complete History of America (abridged)

By Adam Long, Reed Martin, Austin Tichenor

Directed by Ken Urso

History has never been this much fun or as delightfully mutilated. This crowd pleaser will have you rolling in the aisles. Not only will American History be given an irreverent boost, but it will actually be turned into something accessible and alive. The show tackles such controversial questions as: Who really discovered America? Why did Abe Lincoln free the slaves? How many Democrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Plus much more!

"Intellectual vaudeville. Breathlessly paced, slapstick merriment." - New York Times

"It's like being trapped in history class on the last day of high school with the teacher out sick (or tied up in a locker) while the brightest and most irreverent kids gleefully skewer everything you ever learned." - Washington Post

Produced by Madison Theatre Guild at Bartell Theatre 113 E. Mifflin Street
