Some rebellious theater kids take over The Wild Detectives tonight for the first-ever rendition Shakespeare in a Bar. Well, we're pretty sure we've heard some drunken actors (maybe even some of these guys) reciting lines of iambic pentameter over a double whisky on the rocks. Now it's just a bit more premeditated and slightly less slurred.
At 7:30 p.m. tonight they'll post up on the back patio at the Oak Cliff bookstore/coffee shop/ bar to recite a loosely rehearsed version of Twelfth Night (you know, the one with the cross dressing and the love triangles... OK, OK so that's a lot of Shakespeare's plots).
It's the perfect night to grab a brewski, take in some theater and heckle a few actors -- just like Shakespeare would've wanted.
