Pulp Shakespeare: final weekend to catch Pulp Fiction in iambic pentameter

Pulp Shakespeare is finishing up its popular run this weekend here in LA. Favorably reviewed by the LA Times, LA Weekly, Backstage West and elsewhere, this show is pretty much what it sounds like – What if William Shakespeare wrote Quentin Tarantino’s classic Pulp Fiction? While a funny gimmick, the show also pulls out real tension and drama but re-watch the movie before you go for maximum effect.

The show stars Aaron Lyons, a fantastic actor with extensive experience with the works of the real Shakespeare and a good friend of mine, and Dan White. The two take the roles originally played by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson, respectively.

I’m told there are a few tickets left. Every show has sold out, so you better buy while you still can.

The show is playing Friday and Saturday at 8 PM and Sunday at 2 PM at Theatre Asylum, 6320 Santa Monica Blvd., Los Angeles, 90038. Tickets are $20.
