When it comes to producing Shakespeare, for most theaters, bigger is better. Consider Shakespeare in Washington; in the first six months of 2007, this festival will feature more than 75 Shakespeare-related events.

The Baltimore Shakespeare Festival has taken the opposite approach -- smaller and sassier. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is a two-hour, three-man, irreverent rendition of Shakespeare's entire canon. Think CliffsNotes-meets-Monty Python.

If you go The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) continues through Oct. 29 at St. Mary's Outreach Center, 3900 Roland Ave. $25. 410-366-8596 or
