The Reduced Shakespeare Company, a three-man comedy cast that takes long, serious subjects and shortens them down to sharp comedies, will be performing The Complete World of Sports (abridged) at the historic Park Theatre in Cranston. The show is scheduled for Sunday, March 4 and will reduce every sport ever played on every continent in the entire history of the world while also showcasing the trio’s manically paced collection of one-liners.

The “Bad Boys of Abridgement” have created seven stage shows, two television specials, and numerous radio pieces which have all been performed, seen, and heard all over the world. The company’s first three shows, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), The Complete History of America (abridged) and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) ran for nine years at the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus, and were London’s longest-running comedies. 4:00 pm. $20, $25, and $30. 401-467-7275
