“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

What happens when 7 actors learn every part of Shakespeare’s fantastical comedy? Chaos! Roulette Shakespeare will offer a new combination of actors playing different roles every night. 5 minutes before curtain, an audience member will spin the roulette wheel, and determine what actors are playing what parts. It promises to be an exciting experience for the audience and a terrifying one for the actors.
