About the Author:

Begun as a pass-the-hat act at California renaissance fairs, the Reduced Shakespeare Company has gone on to create six world-renowned stage shows, four TV programs, and numerous radio pieces. The company has performed at such venerable institutions as the White House, the Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Center. Its flagship show, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), was London's longest-running comedy, having been performed in the West End for almost ten years. Managing Partners Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor have written and performed the company's wildly successful stage shows since 1989, and their scripts have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Both have performed extensively in the United States, Ireland, and Great Britain. They live in California.
