Join the Roxy while they entertain and educate audiences with a fresh and modern-ish take on the works of the literary lush himself, William Shakespeare. By incorporating an abridged Shakespeare play with some adult beverages thrown in, they’re spreading the word of the Bard in a fun, engaging, and entertaining way.

With every donation of $5 or more, a player of your choosing gets to pull from our hat an improvised scenario to perform, thus switching up the show on the fly in a highly interactive and fun new way!

A brief summary of The Merchant of Venice:

Antonio takes a loan from Shylock to help his friend court Portia. Antonio can't repay the loan, and without mercy, Shylock demands a pound of his flesh. The heiress Portia, now the wife of Antonio's friend, dresses as a lawyer and saves Antonio.
