9780881454857: Completely Hollywood (abridged)

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the theater ... the Reduced Shakespeare Company boldly goes where few would dare - Tinseltown! America's "bad boys of abridgement" take on America's largest cultural and economic export (well, except for weapons) in this seriously silly show biz satire. Get your clapper boards ready as we rummage through the reels and flick through the films in this riotous carnival of the classics. Giving Hollywood more than just a nip and a tuck, they cut through the celluloid to condense the 186 greatest films in Hollywood's over 100-year history into a complete compilation of classic cinematic cliches - plus a few brand new cliches they just made up. "A hilarious and speedy take on Hollywood's highs and lows. I loved it! An instant classic!" -B B C "COMPLETELY HOLLYWOOD (ABRIDGED), is witty and wonderful, wowing audiences with its skillful skewering of American cinema." -Backstage "The abundant comedy springs as often from the visual as the verbal, spewing forth in a fusillade of playfully irreverent images and inventively juxtaposed ideas." -Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Critic's Choice! "A standing ovation ... Genuinely funny." -Benedict Nightingale, London Times "COMPLETELY HOLLYWOOD (ABRIDGED) has the kind of hallucinatory sideways comic logic that you find in, say, the films of the Marx Brothers or the early albums of the Firesign Theater." -KDHX Radio (St. Louis) "You'll nearly fall out of your theater seat laughing. Spectacularly high energy ... an absolute scream!" -The Arizona Republic
