Cornell Theatre: “The Complete History of America (Abridged)”

Six hundred years of history in 6,000 seconds—history will never be the same!

From Washington to Watergate and from the Bering Straits to Baghdad—”The Complete History of America (Abridged)” is a 90-minute rollercoaster ride through the glorious quagmire that is American history, reminding us that it’s not the length of your history that matters—it’s what you’ve done with it!

Brought to you by the same company that offered a good-natured bash of the Bard in “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” this production cheerfully runs riot over our nation’s history.  Deploying silly vaudeville sketches, word-association games, puns, and crude parodies, nothing is sacred and everything is up for laughs.
