You Sip the Wine, They Serve the Shakespeare
October 25, 2018
There is a new kid in the neighborhood. Shake and Bake: Love’s Labour’s Lost recently moved into 94 Gansevoort Street (across the street from The Whitney). It’s a hilarious, abridged, version of Shakespeare’s comedy and in a fun twist, the actors prepare and serve an 8-course tasting menu as the show unfolds.
Shake and Bake has only been open a few weeks and already it’s making headlines. The Daily Beast called the show “A pure and unadulterated delight” and “A near perfectly turned Love’s Labour’s Lost”. Going further to point out, “rarely have I seen an audience more engaged or enthralled with Shakespeare . . . It is a performance that will be remembered long after the liquor and the wine and the vanilla panna cotta with brown butter crumble have worn off.”
Whether you go for the top notch Shakespeare (the actors include a mix of Broadway veterans and up and coming stars), for truly hilarious entertainment (Charles Osborne nearly steals the show with his kitchen-tongs-for-castenets flamenco), or for the comfort food turned haute cuisine (cheeto dusted mac and cheese anyone?) you’ll certainly be glad you did.
Shake and Bake: Love’s Labour’s Lost is now playing at 94 Gansevoort Street. For more information click here. Use code BID25 to save $25 on tickets.
