Are you a fan of the theatrical arts? Do you hunger for more buzzed-revisiting of great moments in our history and culture because you've sheltered in place right through the entire Drunk History series? Orlando Shakes has your Friday night covered, in a joint effort with the Bear & Peacock Brewstillery, Bungalower, Orlando Fringe, and the Thirsty Topher.

On Friday night  May 1  Orlando Shakes presents Virtual ShakesBeer, a soused and sozzled dramatic interactive reading of the Bard's timeless Romeo and Juliet by a small handful of locals thesps under the direction of 
Mark Routhier.

ShakesBeer will be broadcast on the Shakes' Facebook Live. The proceedings begin at 6 p.m. It might get a lil' adult so don't take this as the opportunity to introduce the kiddies to Shakespeare.
