Humorous theatrics in All the Great Books Abridged



Forget SparkNotes, because All the Great Books Abridged smashes 86 popular books from all ages into 90 minutes of humorous theatrics that go by faster than the turn of a page. OK, maybe not that fast, but you definitely don't have to worry about the small print.


Stephen Seay Productions, the Charlotte-based, LGBT-friendly organization that's produced Matt & Ben, Beyond Therapy and The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged) stages four performances of the literary-based show at Wine Up in NoDa. It's slated to star actors Brandon Ballard, Christopher Jones and Jay Russell, portraying a range of charismatic characters from Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein and The Wizard of Oz and other books.
