Shakespeare will meet showbiz in a glittering cabaret-style musical when The Shakespeare Revue comes to the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

Originally produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, it has been revived for the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death.

“With songs and sketches by Victoria Wood, Alan Bennett, Maureen Lipman, Monty Python and many more, this is an evening of hilarity not to be missed,” say promoters.

“After a hugely successful West End run, the show has since then played Off-Broadway, completed five US tours and travelled the world, from Sydney to San Francisco, delighting audiences and receiving rave reviews.”

The show runs from Tuesday 9 to Saturday 20 August for a range of 2.30pm and 7.45pm performances; no performances on Sunday 14.
