The folks at the San Francisco Theater Pub put on shows at bars on Mondays and Tuesdays, nights when regular theaters are traditionally dark. Tonight, they're serving up a double dose of Hamlet, with staged readings of Richard Curtis' "Skinhead Hamlet" (which reduces the play down to about 10 minutes and converts all the dialogue to Cockney slang) and Shel Silverstein's "Hamlet: As Told on the Street," which, contrary to what you may remember of Silverstein from your elementary-school days, is a lengthy, fairly filthy rap. McPuzo & Trotsky round out the entertainment with their original live songs.
Cafe Royale offers beer and wine, and Hideaway BBQ will be serving up Southern fare starting at 6:30 (the show itself starts at 8, but as the space is small, the troupe recommends showing up early to snag a good seat). Admission is free, but there's a suggested donation of $5 for the performances.
